Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)
Usually teachers disagree on using Wikipedia in educational environments, but the reality is that a high percentage of students use it for their studies. Therefore, teachers must be prepared to teach their students how they should use wikipedia as a tool of great educational potential. Teachers must teach at what moment you can use the wikipedia, the assistance it provides, how it works internally and correctly referenced in investigations. We must educate teachers so they can educate students properly.
