  • "Wikipedia in schools" was a project which started in September and was planned to continue through the school year. Project consisted of visits to various schools in Estonia in different parts of the country during which a Wikipedian was conducting a survey among students and teachers about their knowledge of Wikipedia and also giving lectures about how to use Wikipedia and how to contribute to it. From September to December, 14 schools were visited. In the second half of the school year only one more school was visited and so the total number of schools was 15. (project page in Estonian)
