- Detailed proposal
As an exchange in American public high school as well as a student in the mainland China, i will be happy to share the usage of Wikipedia between Chinese high school education and American public high school education. The speech will maintain the experience and the opinion of mine. The basic and middle level education is a significant period of building personal inner databases and the fundamental cognitive system.I am a high school student from Guangdong experimental high school as an exchange student currently study in Lakeshore high school in the United states. My experience about both side of learning experience can provide a fairly comprehensive idea of the comparison of those two iconic education system. In my American literature class, The research paper can't use the quoted resource from Wiki even though it really helps and significant otherwise you can choose the 20 points minus instead. Is it a a problem that the Wikipedia can not be quoted? In the other hand, why people do not trust wiki? The answer is obvious, since everyone can go and edit the content in wiki lead to the problem of the accuracy. I will talk more about the comparison and my findings in the lecture. Wikipedia can give student a good explanation of the concept before being taught and reading the text book. My idea is to create or set up a quotable section of each key word word in order to extend the usage and the influence of Wikipedia. The most important thing on promoting the service is the feedback from users. That is the main point of the service industry-service. The opinion from user is way more important than the experts' so call pro advice. Nowadays, the usage of Wiki is increasing by the extension of the cyber industry. To be a good model of cyber service is a profound mission of Wiki.
