Using Wikipedia in the Classroom

Ever since I took a webinar on the possibilities for Wikipedia in the classroom (across disciplines), I have wanted to try it in one of my classes. The only article I’ve read on doing this was designed for an upper-level writing class at a university with a substantial library that had archives the students used to create Wikipedia posts. I’ve been in touch with the Wiki Ed Foundation and while they couldn’t come this time, I have some materials of theirs to hand out. I really want to talk over with everyone your ideas, thoughts, and concerns relating to this topic – and the underlying issue of why this may/may not be an essential platform for students to engage with in the classroom (and especially our students).
