The web is changing *how we learn*. It
surrounds us with a massive and remixable tapestry of
perspectives, facts and data. It gives us the freedom to learn
whatever we want at our own speed and in our own way. It
lets us become our own teachers. Fundamentally: the free and open nature of the internet is revolutionizing learning.

**Writing for Wikipedia and the Assignment that Keeps on Giving
Cathy Davidson had her graduate students in "The Early American Novel and Other Fictions" write and improve Wikipedia entries on the topic in lieu of traditional term papers. One student, Alexa Garoville, went on to teach at Durham School of the Arts, a public magnet high school, and petitions to be able to use Wikipedia as the basis for term paper assignments for 120 9th graders. Here's the result, as reported on the HASTAC site and in the local newspaper, complete with Alexa's exceptionally useful resource guide for anyone who wants to teach by using Wikipedia:
