Reading Wikipedia in the Classroom

Bringing Wikipedia into the schools

The project Reading Wikipedia in the Classroom aims to get Wikipedia read in classrooms.

Last year, the Education team at the Wikimedia Foundation launched the Reading Wikipedia in the Classroom pilot in 3 pilot countries: Bolivia, Morocco, and the Philippines. They worked with local coordinators from the Wikimedia affiliates in each country to provide an online professional development opportunity to close to 1000 secondary school teachers with a localized curriculum that aligns Wikipedia with UNESCO’s Media and Information Literacy framework.
