Summary
Since its inception, Wikipedia has been viewed as a questionable source of information by the academic community. In this book, Leitch explores issues of authority and authenticity in education by investigating the use of Wikipedia. He argues that a large part of a liberal arts education is to learn how to question sources and utilize a wide variety of material from the latest research to earliest studies. Using WIkipedia can give students the space to actively engage with information and independently question it which will better prepare them to become the next generation of critical thinkers and makers.
