Historical Reminiscents EP 18: Using Wikipedia As A Teaching Tool

Hands holding a Wikipedia globe. Right side reads "Episode 18: Using Wikipedia as a Teaching Tool"

New podcast episode! In this week’s episode I chat about the potential ways Wikipedia can be used in the classroom and other educational settings.  I discuss what skills can be learned from editing Wikipedia and I dive into what support is available to instructors wishing to create Wikipedia focused assignments.

Do you have experience using Wikipedia in a public history, GLAM, or classroom setting? I would love to hear about it, leave a comment or send me a message on Twitter.
