Drumbeat/events/Festival/program/Wikis in Education
Wikipedia, Wikieducator, Wikiversity, and other wikis are often used in education -- by students, teachers, parents, and authors. Below are some specific ideas we will pursue at Drumbeat.
Wikipedia in Education
How to use Wikipedia in the Classroom, how fields can use Wikipedia to enhance their shared research.
Examples from classics (Murder, Madness, and Mayhem), art, and science.
Public Policy Initiative
Examples from a specific current project -- building a consortium of universities and professors.
Building a consortium of student support.
Wikiversity and Wikieducator
Collaborating on class and other learning materials, in and out of the classroom. Both of these projects encourage educators and learners to publih their learning materials and work directly on a wiki, and to hack on every layer of the educational materials stack.
