DESCRIPTION

Links and info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Pfctdayelise/Safe_wiki Wikipedia, the free online encyclopaedia that anyone can edit, has long been criticised by educators and even banned from schools. However, an "abstinence only" technique is bound to fail: even if Wikipedia can successfully be banished from a single classroom, this approach doesn’t enable the student to use Wikipedia appropriately later on. As Wikipedia is now one of the top ten most visited websites around the world, it seems safe to say that like sex, avoiding it completely is not realistic. This talk highlights little-known aspects of Wikipedia that help to understand how it works (and fails), and analytical tools that can be used to evaluate a Wikipedia article’s reliability. It also provides an overview of potential projects for Wikipedia in the classroom, and Wikipedia norms relevant to its inclusion in the HSC English syllabus.

Don Carter, the English inspector at the Board of Studies, said the course was intended to teach students skills of analysis to enable them to be more discerning about content they found on the web."It was felt that Wikipedia reflected notions of the global village; that fluidity, of being up to date and changing in a way that other websites don't do."
