To sandbox or not to sandbox?

Why use a sandbox

  • Lower pressure, "shielded" from larger Wikipedia editor community, students feel safer
  • No risk of having work changed/deleted unexpectedly
  • Students' sandboxes are a great place for doing peer reviews of articles in progress

Why edit live (in the mainspace)

  • Exciting, immediate changes to Wikipedia
  • Collaborative editing, feedback from larger Wikipedian editing community
