Calling all Education Program Leaders and Educators that appreciate what
Wikipedia (and its sister projects) can do for education!!
We've been working on the #Eduwiki campaign, which is focused on helping
teachers experience with and learn from using Wikipedia as an educational
resource, with the support of 4 lesson plans.
The campaign's main page can be found here: https://outreach.wikimed
(some translations have been made,
but there's always room for more languages) ;)
There's also a suggested press kit available, that can be used as a base
when reaching out to media. It can be found here: https://docs.google.com/
free to adapt it to your context. For instance, do add names, e-mails and
twitter contacts for the representatives that are most appropriate for your
country and language. The Collab members are there to give support when
needed: reach back to education(a)wikimedia.org if you would like to receive
assistance, and we will help you connect to a Collab member.
We kindly request you help us with diffusion on social media as well. We
will be tweeting daily from our @WikiEduProgram account. You are of course
welcome to follow the account, re-tweet what you like and translate and
adapt to your context.
This initiative/experiment is carried out in the spirit of helping the
movement to reach out to educators. Support will be available from Collab
members where needed,
