Get Your Study On By Writing Wikipedia Entries

0

As we told you in a previous post, Wikipedia.com can be a valuable resource for students – if used appropriately. One way to use as a study resource is to read the articles related to your topic of study. If there is any information missing, add it. Writing the ideas in your own words will help you internalize the topic. If the articles are complete, consider reading them aloud for the Spoken Wikipedia Project.

Reading the information will help you remember it. Additionally, your recording will help other Wikipedia users in the future. Of course, do keep in mind that Wikipedia is user-edited and contains errors — it’s a good idea to double check all information before committing it to memory.
