Presenter: Amber Delliger “NEVER use Wikipedia as a resource!” Join a seasoned librarian and an ABE teacher to learn why we encourage our students to use Wikipedia. During this session we will explore why Wikipedia is a great way to introduce students to information literacy. Leave with tools to help your students find, evaluate, categorize, deconstruct, and synthesize information using this commonly used tool in and outside of the classroom.
A quick video explanation of Dr. Johnson's views on use of Wikipedia and other wikis in classwork that requires a scholarly resource. The basic point of the video is that at the college level, and especially the graduate-level, it is important for learners and colleagues alike to consider the level of scholarship they employ as part of their efforts to attribute ideas, figures, facts, and media in their analysis and synthesis of course topics.
Free Civic Online Reasoning lessons, assessments and videos are available at 🤍 You might have heard that you can’t trust anything on Wikipedia. If that’s the case, then why do professional fact checkers often use it? In this video, we break down the basics of how to use Wikipedia wisely. Based on research with professional fact checkers, the Civic Online Reasoning curriculum from the Stanford History Education Group provides resources to help students become better consumers of digital information.
Wikipedia is core to the Open Educational Resources (OER) movement and is considered as the biggest OER in the world (Caswell et al., 2008). Wikipedia provides learning and research resources through a public online platform, and it is widely used to find information and to collaborate in knowledge creation. Although Wikipedia is frequently used by higher education students as a source of information (Wannemacher & Schulenburg, 2010), there are a few courses in which it plays an actual ‘active’ role within the learning process (Aibar & Lerga, 2015). A pilot developed in 2013 offered the first evidence about the effects of the use of Wikipedia in a course in Statistics (Meseguer-Artola, 2014). However, and contrary to expectations, it showed that Wikipedia had a weak positive effect on the student’s academic performance. In this presentation by the Open University of Catalonia's Antoni Meseguer-Artola, he outlines a more comprehensive study they performed which analysed four introductory courses taken by a total of 1,220 students. Each of these courses situated in a specific knowledge area: human resources, statistics, marketing, or consumer behaviour. In all these cases, Wikipedia was used as a primary learning resource, and it was appropriately integrated with the existing learning materials. Participants in the courses were asked to compare these standard materials with Wikipedia and to provide their perceptions on the basis of four quality facets: completeness, reliability, currentness and usefulness. In order to adequately assess the influence of Wikipedia on the student’s final mark, the student’s marks have also been considered in the previous academic semester – when Wikipedia was not used as a primary course resource. The study sought to explore the student’s perceptions about the quality of Wikipedia, to show the potential positive impact of the active use of Wikipedia on the student’s academic performance, and to explore whether its influence depends on the knowledge area or not. A range of multivariate statistical techniques has been used to assess the validity of the hypotheses, including contrasts of means, discriminant analysis, and multiple linear regression analysis. Results support the idea that the student’s perceptions about Wikipedia change across knowledge areas, and also depend on the student’s academic profile. Added to this, we have found evidence confirming the hypotheses that Wikipedia has a positive effect on the student’s academic performance, and that the magnitude of this influence ranges from one course to another.

You could argue Wikipedia is a good example of the internet being a force for good. A free to use site, run largely by volunteers, which provides a service where anyone can educate themselves on various topics. Sure, like everything, it is subject to the biases of its volunteer force, but by and large Wikipedia has a good record on being pretty fair. There is a saying that 'reality has a left wing bias', and that seems to have been the thing that created Conservapedia. This Right-Wing clone of wikipedia claims to reject bias while promoting evolution, blatant conservative opinions and conspiracy theories. .00:00:00 - Conservatives want a safe space 00:03:00 - Conservapedia Origins 00:09:10 - The World View of Conservapedia 00:16:30 - Conservapedia thinks Joe Biden is a Maoist 00:21:40 - The Conspiracies of Conservapedia 00:29:00 - There is no hope for Conservatives My Patreon: 🤍 Follow me on Twitter: 🤍 My Instagram: 🤍 Second Channel: 🤍 My Podcast: 🤍 My Subreddit: 🤍 My Personal Reddit: 🤍 My Medium: 🤍 Alex (guy who did the graphics) YouTube channel: 🤍

Wikipedia has an article about Gamergate. It's complete nonsense. The Gamergate controversy was a consumer backlash against dishonest media coverage, poor ethics in journalism, woke scolding, and cringe identity politics specifically focused on the gaming industry. It focused primarily on exposing Corruption, Collusion, and Censorship within these industries as its main goals. Unfortunately, as with many movements that expose the fraudulence and dishonesty of establishment media machines, the media decided to abuse their power and utilize tactics of yellow journalism and lies of omission to slander Gamergate as a "Harassment campaign." A hoax that is still believed by numerous people, as well as further pushed by ignorant Bread/Grift-tubers to this day. Because Wikipedia operates largely by repeating MSM narratives, their article stands as a major mark of misinformation and propaganda in regards to the Gamergate controversy. This video is focused on refuting it. Disclaimer: This video does not condone, and in fact this channel as a whole, strongly condemns the use of harassment and/or violence towards any individual or group. The purpose of this video is to show the Gamergate controversy from the side that the media did not cover, and expose the dishonesty in said coverage. 00:00 Intro 02:48 Feel free to skip to here if you already understand GG 09:17 Bad sources and Yellow Journalism 16:35 Circular reporting / "Citogenesis" 17:55 Further Evidence against the Narrative 18:52 How Wikipedia is flawed 21:50 Conclusion LINKS All My Links: 🤍 If you want to leave me a tip / support my content: 🤍 Follow me on Twitter for channel updates and general bantz: 🤍 My Discord: 🤍 Odysee Backup: 🤍 Rumble Backup: 🤍 = Ody see Backup: 🤍

The Orthodox Lobby in Russian Wikipedia. Trailer "Today, people's moods on large scale are determined not by God's truth, but a technology" (patriarch Kyrill) In the year of 2001 Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger create the largest free encyclopedia in history. It is interesting that Wikipedia is a site of summary of the knowledge of mankind and its culture. Today this resource is on the sixth place in the list of the most popular Internet sites. Wikipedia turned into a real power tool. "If you go online you have to have only one goal which is the word of God. You have to help people!" (patriarch Kyrill) What do you think, what stands behind the interest of the ROC to Wikipedia? Obviously Wikipedia is a very popular resource, read and used by many, which makes it very tempting to influence minds through Wikipedia. "I appeal pastors today - go places where you are not even listened to, toll an alarm bell otherwise we will wreck our country again" (patriarch Kyrill) I think there is a danger if people are going to make important decisions and form their beliefs relying on information that may be erroneous #orthodox #lobby #in #russian #wikipedia #patriarch #kyrill #jimmy #wales #larry #sanger #free #encyclopedia #pastors #putin #federation #massimo #introvigne #sociology #of #religion #cesnur #oleg #maltsev #institute #OrthodoxLobby #LobbyInRussianWikipedia #RussianWikipedia #PatriarchKyrill #JimmyWales #LarrySanger #FreeEncyclopedia #Pastors #Putin #RussianFederation #MassimoIntrovigne #SociologyOfReligion #Cesnur #OlegMaltsev #InstituteCesnur
Just recently, the most famous online encyclopaedia, Wikipedia, was caught under fire in Pakistan. The website was given a time duration of just 48 hours by PTA (Pakistan Telecommunication Authority) to look into the mess. However, the requests weren't fulfilled within the time limit, which ultimately led to the website getting banned in Pakistan on February 1, 2023.

How to (properly) use Wikipedia as a source! Too many times I've seen people refer to the user-generated site as a primary (or in worse cases) sole source. That's simply not the case. A proper Wiki-page has references throughout the article called "footnotes" but most people do not investigate them further. Just needed to get this off my chest. It was an extremely cathartic experience.

Wikipedia is often portrayed as an a-hierarchical, spontaneous, open-collaboration movement. These treats are definitely common for Wikipedia, yet it also does have a darker side. For a movement which despises hierarchies and structures, it is extremely over-regulated: the number of regulatory documents on English Wikipedia exceeds 400,000 words, and the bureaucratic creed is way out of control. Also, for a movement relying so much on collaboration, Wikipedia is a surprisingly solitary and conflict-driven community. In the presentation I am going to show how overregulation and conflicts actually help Wikipedia grow. Seminar organized by the IN3 research group Open Science and Innovation.

Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. In a 2011 survey 2010 UNU-MERIT Survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female; more recent research 2013 Benjamin Mako Hill survey points to 16% globally and 22% in the US. The data relative to trans and non-binary editors is basically non-existent. That’s a big problem. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity is not: gaps in participation create gaps in content. Let’s change that. Join Laura Soito, Associate Professor at the University of New Mexico College of University Libraries and Learning Sciences, and Liz Neely, Curator of Digital Experience at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum for a discussion on why this matters and tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian.

The approach of peak oil has led many governments to take ownership or control of fossil fuel reservoirs for strategic and economic reasons, although resource nationalism applies to other resources, such as metals, or in less developed nations, mining investment. Resource nationalism conflicts with the interests of multinational corporations.

Ideally, water resource management planning has regard to all the competing demands for water and seeks to allocate water on an equitable basis to satisfy all uses and demands. As with other resource management, this is rarely possible in practice.
Here, Dr Emma Pauncefort offers her first snapshot of how the world wide web has led to the reimagining of age-old media, starting with the reference resource and human endeavours to document ‘knowledge’. She takes as her historical example the titanic C18th enlightenment project which was the Encyclopédie and reflects how Wikipedia’s mission compares with the earlier collaborative vision to share knowledge for the good of mankind for time anon. (There are of course a whole number of other historical examples we could draw on here, many outside of a western context.)
