This Friday at 2pm, teachers in the Edinburgh area are invited to join an exciting open session at the fully-booked EduWiki Conference 2014.
And if you can’t make that, there’s also an Edu Wiki Hallowe’en Edition TeachMeet at 7pm in Edinburgh. More on that, incuding sign-up link, here.
The 2pm session, Workshop C: Wiki*edia Projects in Schools (for students under 18) is led by Daria Cybulska, Wiki Media UK Programme Manager.
If you’re interested, you’re encouraged to contact Ally Crockford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ally Crockford, Wikimedian in Residence at the National Library of Scotland explains the connection in a guest post on the Engage for Education site.
There’sWikivoyage, Wikidata, Wikiversity, Wikinews, Wikiquote, and Wiktionary, too. They’re all hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation, a non-profit organisation that develops and maintains the open content on these sites provided free of charge.
With all of these projects seeking to provide various educational components freely and openly, it’s exciting to see the different ways that educators from all levels have begun to interact with them. EduWiki is a conference designed in part to showcase the newest and most innovative educational collaborations with Wikimedia in the UK.
