Can Wiki Ed assignments be adapted for editing the Simple English edition of Wikipedia?

I teach developmental writing at the University of Alaska and am interested in using Wiki Ed to give advanced English Language Learners experience in writing and editing in Wikipedia. Since the standard English Wikipedia often uses language that is too complex, I hope to use the Simple English edition. This Wiki also has the added benefit of being much less developed than the main Encyclopedia, so I expect finding articles to write/edit will be much easier for these students.
