Students use Wikipedia—but have you ever thought of asking them to contribute content to Wikipedia? In this presentation, LiAnna Davis from the Wiki Education Foundation 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 -- a true authentic learning service project for the digital age.
