In November 2021 we published an article in The Conversation which obviously touched a nerve since it was shared by around 7,000 readers. The article, 'Students are told not to use Wikipedia for research. But it’s a trustworthy source’, derived from our observation that first-year university students are being held back by an outdated view of Wikipedia, which they were taught in school. Given the usefulness of Wikipedia as both a source of information and as a media literacy teaching tool, this article was intended to change the narrative around Wikipedia. It represented the first step in a pilot project investigating the use of Wikipedia as a fact-checking resource in schools.
