The Wikipedia & Education User Group is conducting a survey to understand
the technological needs of EduWiki community across the movement. The
results of this survey will not only assist to map the global needs of the
leaders of Wikimedia in Education, but also help us to prioritize the
needs. The Wikipedia & Education User Group’s goal is to support the
development of better resources and technical tools to support the work
happening around the world. Please help us spread the word. Every EDUWiki
user/leader counts, and the more people fill out this survey, the easier it
will be to advocate for our needs.

Also, as some you of might already be aware that the User Group is
organizing EduWiki Conference 2020, in Serbia, we have proposed a grant to
WMF in this regard. We would like community members to go through it and

I am looking for someone to co-write an article for an ethnographic
scientific magazine in Poland "Łódzkie Studia Etnograficzne" (Łódzkie is
from Łódź - the town in central Poland). They asked me specifically about
the subject of education & Wikipedia. It can be even a news-style article,
but 20,000 letters minimum. I am myself an ethnographer and I coordinated
two GLAMwiki-projects about ethnography, so that would be my part. And
maybe someone could add information about the Wikimedia Education movement
(idea, events, goals etc.)?
I can't write it by myself, because it has to be co-author not from Poland
:) Join me!
