Questions for you:
(You may post your thoughts in the discussion tab above it you like.)
  • What are the pros and cons of a “free encyclopedia that anyone can edit,” particularly in an educational setting?
  • Do teachers have a responsibility to discuss Internet resources, such as Wikipedia, with students?
    Do districts or schools have a responsibility to provide professional development on this, or is this up to the individual teacher?
  • Should Wikipedia be accepted as a valid source for school projects?
  • Should a policy be set on the use of Wikipedia in school?
    If so, who should set policy – districts? schools? teachers?
    And what should that policy be?
  • Other questions from the audience to be added.
