Having a better understanding of Wikipedia and its functions is something that our students would benefit from, and therefore, we must create assignments connected to Wikipedia and its sister platforms. Not only teaching the principles of the platform or the manners of looking at revision history, talk pages and sources, but also how to edit articles, upload pictures to Wikimedia Commons and translate excellent articles from different languages using the built-in tools.

In this workshop, we will get a grasp of how Wikipedia and its sister projects function, but the main focus will lie on how teachers can design assignments with Wikipedia, incorporating the platform into your education.

Focus on Innovative pedagogies

The focus would also be on the use of Open Educational Resources
