Mythbusting Wikipedia: Misinformation, AI, and Volunteers

Mythbusting Wikipedia: Misinformation, AI, and Volunteers

Wikipedia is a free encyclopaedia, edited by volunteers from around the world. In this session you’ll learn how reliable Wikipedia is, how it’s being used in classrooms, and how it can help people understand referencing, misinformation, and the need for reliable sources. Information from Wikipedia is used by search engines like Google, and AI chatbots like Chat GPT, and you’ll see how easy it is to edit Wikipedia yourself to make sure this information remains correct.

A Zoom link to join the meeting will be sent to you the day before the webinar.
