How to Use Wikipedia as an Educational Tool in the Classroom

Imagine a classroom in which all students are engaged, learning subject content, improving their digital literacy, and gaining valuable twenty-first-century skills while contributing to a global volunteer based movement. The Wikipedia Education Program is a win-win-win. Educators achieve learning targets, students gain valuable skills and Wikipedia gains content. This workshop will introduce the Wikipedia Education Program and demonstrate to educators how to begin using Wikipedia in the classroom. Instead of students writing a research paper for their teacher’s eyes only, students write for the world.
