I like what he says about enlightened teachers not getting upset by students referring to Wikipedia for the their homework, but rather telling students their task is to write a wikipedia article. I’ve discussed this on another blog I have over at Dundee e-Med Ed and posed the question whether we should be encouraging our students to edit out the inaccuracies on Wikipedia. Anne Marie Cunningham also blogged about Information Literacy sabotage and how a tutor wasn’t very happy when a student edited and corrected a Wikipedia page.
The other key things that stood out were that learning is about asking questions rather than answering them. If we’re still asking questions then we’re still learning, we mustn’t stifle our desire to learn. He also highlights the importance of sharing and feedback, the latter being an area where the student satisfaction surveys indicate we need to improve.
