Many years ago I remember some research where three groups of children were asked to find the answers to some research questions.
- Group one used the Encyclopedia Britannica books
- Group two used any site on the Internet
- Group three used the Encyclopedia Britannica CD Rom
It was Group 1, followed by Group 2 and finally Group 3. - It would be interesting to see how the children would get on now.
I really like this graphic which shows how Wikipedia has developed over time and is now an acknowledged source of information.
