English: Slides presented at ACEC 2008.

Wikipedia, the free online encyclopaedia that anyone can edit, has long been criticised by educators and even banned from schools. However, an "abstinence only" technique is bound to fail: even if Wikipedia can successfully be banished from a single classroom, this approach doesn’t enable the student to use Wikipedia appropriately later on. As Wikipedia is now one of the top ten most visited websites around the world, it seems safe to say that like sex, avoiding it completely is not realistic.

This paper highlights little-known aspects of Wikipedia that help to understand how it works (and fails), and analytical tools that can be used to evaluate a Wikipedia article’s reliability. It also provides an overview of projects around the world that have accepted Wikipedia in the classroom and the lessons learned, with recommendations for future projects.
