Teacher training of teachers in Bolivia

Teachers and Wikipedia

32 primary and secondary school teachers were chosen from 5 different regions of Bolivia and were invited to be part of a three-day bootcamp.

They attended different workshops, about how to use Internet in class. As part of these trainings teachers were helped to edit on Wikipedia and understand the inner workings of the Enciclopedia. It covered four areas: 1. How to use web browsers and find reliable information. 2. Digital content creation. 3. Wikipedia, how to read it and create content. 4. Information literacy (history, values and communities).

Erlan Vega participated as a facilitator. Two foundations paid for the place, the connection costs and traveling costs for all teachers who were accepted.
