Back in October, I talked to you all about how much I just love, love, LOVE infographics. This love has only been reinforced after I came across this gem – a visual depiction of the rise, adaption and necessity of Wikipedia.
As a blogger exploring the realm of technology in emerging markets I have long found the efforts of Wikipedia to be inspiring for students around the world. In More Arabic Content – Wiki-ed! I took a look at how Wikipedia is expanding its Arabic content by working with Egyptian university students, whowill submit articles to the encyclopedia powerhouse as classroom assignments.
Furthermore, in 21st Century Paper Writing: From Papyrus to iPad I took a look at how students enrolled at the College of Engineering in Pune, India will be required to contribute to informational pieces to the site on topics such as computer electronics, telecom or mechanical engineering.
International education is making the most of Wikipedia. How has Wikipedia shaped your global education practice? Does Wikipedia have any drawbacks? How do you feel about the sites self-edit option? Be sure to share your thoughts with us here at Bon.
Keep Calm and Learn On,
