This presentation was shared at the 2010 Martin Institute's Fall Conference. Wikipedia is an excellent tool for creating projects that teach students important 21st century skills and knowledge. Our students updated the Wikipedia for Millington, Tennessee, and through the project we were able to teach many concepts including research skills, how to evaluate internet sources and ethical internet use, The project also provided students with authentic feedback from the real world of their classroom work.
