Wikipedia contributions and promotion

I have contributed to Wikipedia in several ways since 2006. I believe it is a very useful resource, form of collaboration on knowledge building, and tool for teaching and learning.


I've mainly contributed to the English-language Wikipedia but also to several others, with the username "A12n." In February 2011, I registered A12n as a "global account," which can be used across all Wikimedia projects.

In total my edits to the English Wikipedia since August 2006 number well over 3000. Many are minor, some are more substantive and a few quite extensive. I've also created a few articles, as listed below (this may not be 100% complete, but in any event does not include redirect or talk pages):

Discussions about use of Wikipedia in education

I have discussed ways of using Wikipedia in focused ways in education, especially in regard to African studies. See for instance these messages on the H-Africa list:

Promotion of Wikipedias in African languages

In 2006, I co-founded the AfrophoneWikis list (with Martin Benjamin) for discussion of African language editions of Wikipedia.
