User-Generated Content in Education

User-generated content is becoming accepted for curriculum materials in many schools and states. What Wikipedia started has grown into a system that produces not only encyclopedia articles, but also K-12 and higher education textbooks and primary reading curricula. In some ways, user-generated content is a reflection of both the changing nature of knowledge and expertise and changing teaching practices and learning theory. This book will focus on user-generated content that can be used to support the curriculum in a bricks-and-mortar or online classroom.
