Educational Programs

We fulfill our mission to contribute to a world of free and open knowledge and lifelong learning. Through our Programs for Schools, Seniors Write Wikipedia, and Open Education Program, we strive to attract newcomers, spread awareness of Wikimedia projects, and deepen relationships and activities within the Czech community.

Seniors Write Wikipedia

The life wisdom of seniors will find its place at Wikipedia, while they will find their place in the digital world and gain a new and meaningful hobby.

Professor Sokol and other editors came up with the idea for the Seniors Write Wikipedia courses in 2013. Since then, in addition to senior courses across the country, we have been providing online support, organizing Senior WikiTowns and other educational events.

Programs for Schools

Let’s put an end to the term papers that nobody reads. The future belongs to open and shared knowledge. We teach students to write and use Wikipedia.

We provide a platform for students and teachers to submit credited work in the form of Wikipedia articles. Using the tools of Toolkit, teachers can assign entries for students to write and track their activity. This creates validated content and a chance to create term papers and articles in a meaningful way all at the same time.

More about our programs

Seniors write Wikipedia

Seniors Write Wikipedia project provides senior citizens with the space for sharing knowledge as well as for making social connections and spending their free time. The program also engages libraries all over the Czech Republic by providing training to the library workers in the education of the elderly. The courses for librarians comprise of three loosely related trainings focusing on the Wikipedia basics and on the education of the elderly. Taking full advantage of the most extended network of libraries in the world, we teach the elderly how to use Wikipedia all over the country.

Are you interested in hosting a course for the elderly or in attending one? Contact us at seniori@wikimedia.cz or visit seniori.wikimedia.cz.

Students Write Wikipedia

Students Write Wikipedia project ensures there is no more hard work wasted on papers that end up at the bottom of a shelf. What more, Wikipedia itself is a database of yet unresearched topics which can provide the students with inspiration for coming up with their own paper ideas. We can teach you how to use the Outreach Dashboard, or we can organize a training familiarizing you with the basics of working with Wikipedia. In cooperation with our Programs for Community, we also host a whole range of editathons focused on the topics relevant to students.

Are you interested in joining the project together with your students? Contact us at studenti@wikimedia.cz or visit  studenti.wikimedia.cz.

Teach (With) Wiki

Teach (With) Wiki is a project aimed mainly at teachers of 8th and 9th grade elementary school students and first- or second-year high school students. The educational program introduces you to the basic (technical) functions of Wikipedia and subsequently provides you with practical examples demonstrating how to make effective use of these functions in developing critical thinking and digital literacy.

Contact us at studenti@wikimedia.cz or visit the Teach (With) Wiki website.

Open Educational Program

The program is aimed at educating both the general public and the existing community surrounding Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects. The program attempts to create an open space for education for a number of target groups and to offer a closer look at areas and topics not fully covered in our other educational programs.

The program is open in two directions: it attempts to reach outside to draw in the general public, while also supporting the activities that contribute to the existing community on the inside. 

The program encompasses:

  1. educational activities for the general public 
  2. support of community-driven educational activities
  3. annual WikiConferences 
  4. cooperation with an extensive team of Wikimedia lecturers  
  5. strategic cooperation and partnerships in the area of education
  6. production and dissemination of open educational resources (OER)
