Shanghai, China

I am listening to a podcast by Wesley Fryer from a workshop he attended in Shanghai, China given by Alan November. He posed an assignment in his workshop that I found fascinating. Give a class the assignment of creating an entry in Wikipedia. This sounds fascinating. Grade school students creating an entry in the worlds largest encyclopedia. Then connect the recent changes to an RSS feed. That way they would see when changes are made to their article and what the changes are.
This would be really cool. I just looked on Wikipedia and there is no entry on Andrew Junge the artist that created the Styrofoam HUMVEE American Detritus. I am going to have my students create that entry.
