Wikipedia Is Not Therapy!

Remember when I had contributed an article (of mostly historical value) about education software E-Slate and they were taking it down because some bot found it had text that was also in another wiki (which was also open). More ridiculous is that the source of both texts was the same and had the rights needed to publish it.

At another time some moderators that were posting articles about tiny football teams of Greek villages were removing an article about ScratchR, the social platform that MIT Scratch uses, saying it’s not refrerenced enough (it had gotten Ars Electronica award!).

Completely ignorant people in the field of educational software go on and remove articles trying to document educational software/platforms from people with published research (in journals) in this field. Total fail.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
