IBERSID Spanish 2011 A guide for Wikipedia student edition as a collaborative active learning activity is presented. Whereas the use of wikis in the classroom is widely documented, the educational possibilities of Wikipedia itself are not so much. We offer a classification of participatory activities suitable for being carried out by the students in the development of the curricular contents. One of the most relevant aspects is the transformation of the critical and distrustful speech towards the Wikipedia in a direct knowledge of its scope, process of production and systems of quality control. In addition, it is a good opportunity to improve a widespread source of information among university undergraduates that has a real impact and for the students to develop a more critical and active use of information sources. 0 2
Wikipedia: Example for a future Electronic Democracy?: Decision, Discipline and Discourse in the Collaborative Encyclopaedia Sylvain Firer-Blaess Studies in Social and Political Thought English 2011 This article describes the mechanisms of a successful product of the Internet involving mass collaboration, namely, the online encyclopaedia Wikipedia.

In the first part of the paper, the author analyses the decision making process, including debates and consensus, which Wikipedia employs, and makes a connection with the Habermasian model of rational discourse. In the second part, he analyses the disciplines (in the Foucauldian sense) which underlie and permit this decision making process. He finds that, on the theoretical plane, despite the harsh criticisms Habermas claimed against the writings of Foucault, we can see a rather complementary relation between the establishing of rational discourse in Wikipedia and the effects of its discipline. In a third part, the author shows the resistances that face the decision-making process and the disciplines, and considers the reactions that have emerged against such resistances. These findings lead on to a discussion of the normativity of Foucauldian disciplines and the possibility of their heterogeneity.

Finally, the author examines the possible implementations of the Wikipedia system to electronic democracy projects.
