Planning and Activities
Founder of Wikipedia, Jimmy Wales, needs your help to identify reliable and less reliable sources of information. Can you justify your own sources of information and convince him to ‘take you on’ as an editor?
- To identify features of a website or contributor that may suggest information is reliable or unreliable.
- To find reliable geographic information on local cities or counties in the UK.
- Identify potentially unreliable contributors to Wikipedia pages for Jimmy Wales.
- Complete a ‘3 website challenge’ on the human or physical geography of a UK city, county or region, finding a sliding scale of reliable sites.
- Justify to Jimmy Wales the use of an online site for reliable information on the human geography of a UK city, county or region.
