Child-friendly Wikipedia

We sometimes use Wikipedia to help the boys with their homework – most recently Josh had to write about India etc. However, we’re always a little nervous about what else they might find.

Then I bumped into Wikipedia for Schools and the problem is solved! 🙂

This 2008/9 Wikipedia DVD Selection is a free, hand-checked, non-commercial selection from Wikipedia, targeted around the UK National Curriculum and useful for much of the English speaking world

Excellent stuff – the power of open content…

  2. This is a great thing –but from what I can see, the page itself does not have an actual search; you have to go by subject to find your articles. If Wikipedia for Schools had an actual search option, it would be far more user-friendly.
