Wikipedia - not always reliable (Sasquatch), but is a good first place to look.

The following ia from wikipedia.doc - thanks Mallory:

With luck the students will learn:

  • how easy it is to mount information on Wikipedia
  • that anybody, not just experts, can add information to Wikipedia
  • that there are other sources of information more reliable than that on Wikipedia.
  • that information on Wikipedia is subject to change given new research
  • that Wikipedia is socially constructed and edited
  • the importance of individual contribution to the knowledge of the world
  • the need for ethical creation and use of information
  • that _plagiarism _is_ easily _identifiable
