Wikipedia (along with its sister projects on the Wikimedia platform) is becoming part of the toolset of more and more educators. Still, a number of myths and a relative lack of understanding of its inner works limits uptake. In this presentation, we will discuss the value of getting students to contribute to Wikipedia, inserting it into planning (in lieu of a disposable assignment), and the competencies that are built through this type of task. We will explore how this activity is true to the idea of Open Education, and serves the needs of students, educators, institutions and society.
