It always bothered me in my high-school career that teachers more often than not would tell us not to use Wikipedia becuase it's un credited, and not a good source of information.
Now understandably there are pages with wonky facts that may or may not be true. 9/10 times they are asking us to look up historical information and Wikipedia is extremely monitored and scrutinized so when a page is edited, a flag pops up and that page is reviewed by sevral mods. So if someone changes a page and puts all sorts of silly crap on there, it will be reverted and fixed within a few hours normally. So most of the time if we are looking up stuff about and related to WW2? We can find accurate, information in great abundance.
Now I called out one or two of my history teachers when they told us not to, and more or less this conversation ensued.
Teacher: "Don't use wikipedia for your facts"
Me: "Why not? It's accurate information"
Teacher: "Don't question me, I said don't use it, and it's not a credible source for information, anyone can edit it!"
Me" Really? Your right! However, it's extremely moderated, and if I were to put silly untrue facts all over the place, those pages would within an hours time be fixed, and I would be banned."
Teacher: "you don't really know that, I don't want any of you using it, and I will be fact checking."
Me: "In other words, you don't want us to use it becuase it's easy, effective, and accurate, you can even check it with our books, you may even learn something new"
At this point, it became a back and forth between me and her and she was using circular logic about something she did not use, nor fully understand. I ended up getting the information that she dislikes it becuase it can't be trusted in her eyes, and she didn't have this kinda luxury when she was our age. so she wanted us to go to the library and find books about the information. (I'm not unwilling to do that sometimes, but when it's done just becuase they hate the internet, it's not ok in my eyes)
