Editing Wikipedia as Critical Digital Pedagogy

  1. 1. WIKIPEDIA AS CRITICAL DIGITAL PEDAGOGY Adeline Koh Associate Professor & Director of DH@Stockton Stockton University @adelinekoh
  2. 2. REWRITE WIKIPEDIA • Editing Wikipedia as an educational and political act • Hands up—how many of you will admit to checking Wikipedia when looking up something you don’t know? :D • Postcolonial Digital Humanities Project (dhpoco.org) @adelinekoh
  3. 3. NEUTRALITY & BIAS • Wikimedia Wikipedia’s Editor’s Survey of 2011:“if there is a typical Wikipedia editor, he has a college degree, is 30-years- old, is computer savvy but not necessarily a programmer, doesn’t actually spend much time playing games, and lives in US or Europe.” • Marginalized groups and their histories (people outside of the United States and Europe, people of color, poor people, women, LGBT people, and disabled people) are less represented (or less well represented) on Wikipedia.
  4. 4. WHYTHE REWRITING WIKIPEDIA PROJECT? - March 2013, inspired by the #toofew feminist movement to engage Wikipedia - Global Women Write In Events. 3 so far. #GWWI 1:April 2012, #GWWI II: March 2013, #GWWI III: October 2014 @adelinekoh
  5. 5. WIKIPEDIA’S CONSERVATISM • Reproduces conservatism in print knowledge • “Notability” • “Verifiability, NotTruth” • Stephen Colbert,“Truthiness,”“Wikiality” • “Wikiality” <—> Said’s Colonial Library? @adelinekoh
  6. 6. CRITICAL DIGITAL PEDAGOGY • “Critical Digital Pedagogy: an approach to teaching and learning predicted on fostering agency and empowering learners (explicitly and implicitly critiquing oppressive power structures” — Jesse Stommel • “Critical Pedagogy”—Paulo Freire, bell hooks • Freire:Against “banking model” of education in which “education becomes an act of depositing, in which students are the depositories and the teacher is the depositor.” • hooks: learning as community
  7. 7. EDITING WIKIPEDIA • Editing Wikipedia as Critical Digital Pedagogy • Involving students in the creation of knowledge • Getting students to be familiar with rules of (and understand the problems with) online communities • Getting students to understand bias in knowledge
  8. 8. LET’S BEGIN! Go to http://en.wikipedia.org @adelinekoh

  11. 11. PLAY INTHE SANDBOX Practice writing summary, saving, creating section headers (use equal sign = on both sides to make something a header, different numbers of signs surrounding gives you different sizes of headers).ATOC is automatically created if you have 4 + sections. Use “show preview” to see how your page looks before publishing and use “edit summary” to narrate the kinds of changes that you’ve

  13. 13. THINGSTHAT WILL HELP MAKEYOUR ENTRIES “STICKY” • Make minor grammatical and word choice cleanup on non-controversial articles, as they help to establish that you’re a “good faith” member of the community.They also help your input be taken more seriously if you become embroiled in larger disputes later. @adelinekoh
  14. 14. IDEAS FOR EDITING? • For a list of ideas about what to start editing, go to: http://tinyurl.com/gwwi3. • Make small “good faith” edits • Start with articles/stubs rather than articles that have awards @adelinekoh
  15. 15. MORETIPS • Stick around for at least 4 days, making small edits to become an “established editor”—most people don’t even stick around that long! • When making a change that requires evidence, find good secondary sources. If not, your change might be considered vandalism (which does happen quite often) • Maintain a “neutral” POV • Wikipedia as a “tertiary” source; meaning you can only reproduce established, printed knowledge @adelinekoh
