Martin, this is a great post! I particularly agree with your suggestion of
providing basic explanations of complex Wikipedia policies to students and
using the more nuanced version as a class discussion topic, delving into
the grey areas; I know of several instructors who have used this technique
to great success.
Thanks for sharing!

Here in the UK, Digital Literacy is a term the
education sector is very
excited about, so I've written a blog post on how Wikipedia editing relates
to that topic. It's already had some favourable feedback and retweets.
The "one sentence" idea was inspired by Peter Gallert's talk at the
Wikimania education workshop, so thanks Peter.
