Classrooms in the Clouds - Opening Up the
Academy with Wikipedia , Queens campus
What if we stopped prohibiting our students to engage with
Wikipedia? What if we instead encouraged students in our
classes to become active Wikipedians, researchers and writers who
contribute to and revise what Wikipedia is and collaboratively
imagine what Wikipedia could be? Well, our students might
learn about how and by whom knowledge is created and gate-kept.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Awadewit/TeachingEssay)

About Classrooms in the Clouds
“Classrooms in the Clouds” is a series of brown bag lunches devoted
to exploring issues in distance learning pedagogy, hybrid or
blended courses, and other varieties of Web-assisted instruction.
The focus of the lunches will be on faculty group discussion; it
will be a place to bring new paradigms and innovations, share best
practices, and discuss problems as they arise. Topics include:
constructing community, developing asynchronic spontaneity, using
wikis, blogs, gaming, podcasting, social networking, and exploring
many other tools for teaching online across disciplines.
