Using Wikipedia

Will Richardson in his Weblogg-ed makes telling points in his post Yet Another Reason We Should be Teaching, Not Blocking, Wikipedia. We can't stop kids from using it and we should be encouraging a generation of reader/editors. He quotes a dodgy Physics textbook from Oxford University Press, which he hopes is no longer being used. Some of the ensuing 32 comments give useful evidence of how spoof entries will not be accepted on Wikipedia.

Bill Badke would agree with the point of view that Wikipedia is an excellent "teachable moment" for faculty and librarians. See his latest article in Information Today at:
