Site your resources! : Wikipedia

By Andrea Bossenmeyer


If you've never seen a video by Common Craft I may first ask you if you've been living under a rock? But second, I highly recommend you visit their site! Common Craft They create these exceptionally simple videos to explain things.

I believe Common Craft is a great resource for teachers and schools! A really easy way to make learning interesting and fun, with video.

They just released a new video, this one explaining wikipedia. Wikipedia is a site I use often to look things up, but in the video I learned:
a) the reason why the internet based encyclopedia is better than the book based
b) Why the site can be considered a reliable source
c) That there is a non-profit agency behind Wikipedia dedicated to bringing all human knowledge within the fingertips of every human being (paraphrased)
