Learning patterns/Preparation to be carried out for EduWiki programs
What problem does this solve?Edit
When it comes to conduct EduWiki programs for Wikipedia in your language, this is not an easy task to do as a community person. Read the instructions below to learn what basic steps should be taken.
What is the solution?Edit
The five basic steps should be taken are as follows:
- Initial research : As an organizer, one should do an initial research about Wikipedia in education.
- Discussion : One should discuss with community and fellow members that what sort of programs (nature of programs) they are going to conduct - where, with whom and how?
- Grants : One should seek for WMF grants to support their expenses.
- Arrangements : Look for resources needed for conducting the programs. You may create a checklist. Resources as in, hall, projector, banner/poster, presentation, Stationery items, Computer labs, Internet connectivity and so on.
- Good to go.
Things to considerEdit
Conducting EduWiki programs is best at educational institutions rather than choosing other venues such as hotel or seminar halls. At institutions, there are all sort of resources easily available such as teachers, students, classroom, Stationery items, Computer equipment, Internet and so on.
Reporting is also a matter of concern. You may use Wiki Education Dashboard for tracking participants' progress.
You may also work on proper workout plan from Day 1.
