Wikipedia Education Program
Students improve critical thinking and research skills by…
- Applying critical analysis to Wikipedia articles to determine how well the article covers the topic, assess what information is missing, and evaluate the extent to which the article is documented with reliable sources.
- Learning best practices and rules for evaluating different source materials, not just Wikipedia.
- Assessing an existing article and deciding what information is missing, which is very similar to the literature review process that is crucial in scholarly research.
