Last year we joined the Velvet at Schools project, offering an educational programme for schools on writing (history) on Wikipedia. The pilot school for us was the Gymnasium of Prof. Jan Patočka in Prague, where we returned again this year on 20 December, this time not online, but “live”. The students of the 3rd year were able to experience Wikipedia up close during the seminar, to see how articles are created, how texts evolve over time and what it means in terms of media literacy.
