Wikipedia vs. Britannica: Using Both to Support Student Learning

Open to: K-12 Grade Teachers, School Librarians, District Librarian Supports and Administrators
Opportunity at a Glance: Wikipedia is better than some make it out to be.  With a little knowledge of how to leverage it, it can be used successfully for student research and learning.  Also, learn the history of the esteemed and authoritative Britannica.  Then compare the two.

This workshop will teach participants  how to use both Britannica from NOVELNY as well as how to use the free Wikipedia.  NY Public Library (NYPL)  will be presenting with Patricia Sarles.
