I’ve just created a page about using Wikipedia on the WRDSB Library Learning Commons website, and thought I’d share it here. The focus is on being your own filter in assessing the quality of Wikipedia articles, using Wikipedia’s own social and technical structure. It is also about using Wikipedia when it is appropriate, and knowing when to look elsewhere.
The page has been very positively received, especially the downloadable poster. Please take a look! WRDSB Library Learning Commons: What About Wikipedia
