This paper describes the design of various scenarios implemented with Mediawiki software. After discussing four case studies, we present and discuss pedagogical and technical design guidelines. This contribution is part of a long-term research and development program to design, implement and evaluate the use of ICT to support integrated scenarios for research, teaching and learning. We argue that properly configured Mediawikis are suitable tools if content production and knowledge integration are at center stage.

The digital divide refers to differential access between groups of individuals to computer-related resources and includes differential use of these same resources. In this edited volume, authors will explore the historical, political, sociological, and economic factors that engender global inequities related to digital technologies. In-depth examinations of the definition and origin of the 'digital divide' will illuminate its relationship to the histories of racism, sexism, classism, and imperialism/globalization. The contributing authors will present the phenomenon of digital equity from various critical social theory perspectives. These critical perspectives, together with the histories of domination and oppression on different continents, will provide contexts for understanding the fertile grounds made available for the international growth and expansion of digital inequity.
