Students use Wikipedia — but have you ever thought of asking them to contribute content to Wikipedia? In this short workshop, LiAnna Davis and Jami Mathewson from the Wiki Education Foundation (http://wikiedu.org) will explain best practices for using Wikipedia as a teaching tool. In contributing content to Wikipedia, students gain skills in media literacy, fact-based writing, research, collaboration, and critical thinking. You’ll learn how Wiki Ed can support you and your students in this innovative service learning assignment.
