Students write Wikipedia: How to use Wikipedia as a teaching tool

Date and Time

Wednesday, November 18, 2015 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM


Students use Wikipedia — but have you ever asked them to contribute content? In this workshop, staff members from the Wiki Education Foundation will talk about why Wikipedia's quality is so important and how students can improve academic topics through a classroom assignment. In contributing content to Wikipedia, students gain skills in media literacy, fact-based writing, research, collaboration, and critical thinking. You’ll learn about best practices for using Wikipedia as a teaching tool and how Wiki Ed can support you and your students in this innovative service learning assignment. Register in Sprout 

Presented by Jami Mathewson and Ian Ramjohn, Wiki Education Foundation
