*Be’er Sheva Educational Initiative*

Be'er Sheva educational project - About a year ago, a Wikipedian who works
in the Be'er Sheva municipality proposed an ambitious educational project.
The idea was to encourage promising students from the 9th grade to write
articles about the city of Be'er Sheva and its surrounding areas. The
purpose of the project is to strengthen the identity and the students’
sense of responsibility in regard to the environment. In order to achieve
these goals, the project aims to create a large number of articles about
Be'er Sheva. The Education Department of the Municipality of Beer Sheva
adopted the project and several people made major efforts to make it
happen: the Municipal Educational Department’s Director, the Ministry of
Education’s Supervisor of the Teaching of Hebrew in the South of Israel and
senior teachers from all of the secondary schools in the city. A senior
Wikipedian heads the project working with the municipal Education

   - September 15 – A follow meeting was held to clarify further steps,
   including the creation of a list of articles with an encyclopedian
   importance ​​concerning Beer Sheva (history, places, people). For this
   purpose, steering committee will be formed, which will have representatives
   of Wikimedia and Wikipedia along with representatives of Department of
   Education in Be'er Sheva Municipality.
   - Also, there is an understanding that there will be a training required
   for teachers in order to establish familiarity with the rules, how to edit,
   reliable sources, and more.
   - October  7 - First lecture followed by a practical editing workshop
   for 25 teachers and district coordinators for language studies in high
   schools at the region.

assembly. The General Assembly authorized the board to extend the board
with two board members from outside the community. These two members aimed
to strengthen the board’s professional capabilities, bringing a new and
fresh take on processes and activities, and contributing from their
 extensive connections and experience.
