Wikipedia in the Classroom: Resource List

You’re teaching with Wikipedia; you’re thinking about teaching with Wikipedia – either way, here’s a list of useful resources. Is there something that you’ve found particularly helpful that I should add here? Let me know and I’ll get it up ASAP.

Wikipedia’s “Welcome to Wikipedia,”  School and University Projects page, “How to Use Wikipedia as a Teaching Tool,” “Education Case Studies,” and “Education Program Handouts.”

Information on Wikipedia’s “Neutral Point of View” and verifiability and citation standards.

My own post on skipping the review process (which is aimed at other audiences).

Adrianne Wadewitz, Anne Ellen Geller, Jon Beasley-Murray essay “Wiki-hacking: Opening up the academy with Wikipedia”

Liz Losh’s interview of Adrianne Wadewitz on effective teaching with Wikipedia and Losh’s example “warm up” assignment.
