quite well in this post on the chapter's blog. 
All the best,

I'm interested in hearing experienced
educators' and researchers' thoughts
about what roles Wikipedia, and Internet-based learning in general, can and
can't do well.
Articles for consideration:
What does Wikipedia education do well, and what doesn't it do well?
Is Wikipedia-based education amplifying the learning of students who are
likely to be from highly resourced schools?
Do we have evidence that Wikipedia based education has outcomes for
students that are similar to, or better than, other kinds of online
How can we offer a service that is widely beneficial for students and
teachers with limited technological resources? Or should we not try because
of the additional challenges?
