Dear Wikimedia Education community,
We’re so excited to invite you to explore Wikimedia Space with us through a new category just for Education. We’ll be piloting the use of this category to centralize communications about Wikimedia & Education, share active discussions, and announce events on the centralized map and calendar. You’ll still be able to find static information and resources on Outreach Wiki, with more dynamic information living on Wikimedia Space.
Wikimedia Space is a new platform introduced by the Wikimedia Foundation which aims to become a point of centralization and redistribution of news and conversations. The Space is also a place where anyone can ask any question related to Wikimedia and find answers. Wikimedia Space has a variety of multilingual features that are currently being expanded, and can already host resources and conversations in multiple languages. As the Wikimedia Space is still a prototype, together we can explore different opportunities and collaborations.
Some of the future possibilities include adding lesson plans, publishing event reports, sharing news, and even fostering mentorship in closed groups. Let’s brainstorm together on what we want for our Education category!
Nichole is a senior program manager and Education team lead at the Wikimedia Foundation. She works to support communities in creating meaningful, locally-relevant education initiatives, that teach students the skills they need for the 21st century.
