What it means to ban Wikipedia: an exploration of the pedagogical principles at stake is a paper discussing how students could use Wikipedia.
Points in the article:
- Students complaining about "hyper-specificity of journal articles".
- Professors emphasising the source more than the information itself.
- The author argue that it is not important that the student use the best source but learn to determine the best source (page 234).
- The author views "true information literacy" as "to evaluate and integrate sources" and "to not just find them but how to judge them for suitability".
- The author favors a pedagogy where "students are show how to evaluate texts for tone, bias, level of analysis, etc."
- Suggest that students peruse the discussion pages of Wikipedia articles, e.g., to "see the process of knowledge creation" and understand the concept of social knowledge.
- This is merely discussion students' use of Wikipedia with no empirical data backup.
- There is a reference to "(Vacharon, 2007)" It is not attached to a sentence and it does not appear in the References listing
