Wikimedia UK Education Meet up – Leicester

On Saturday 21st May 2016, Josie Fraser hosted a really informative and interesting event about Wikimedia UK in Education. This consisted of a series of talks, followed by a workshop where groups were set the task of discussing ideas for Wiki projects in either schools, HE/FE or Other.

What this event did was to provide a great deal of insight into the world of Wiki and how it is used and misused in education across the board.

There were some amazing projects taking place which ranged from students in editing existing entries (editathons), to a large group of university language students translating pages into English (translatathons).

Josie has already written an excellent account of the event, which can be lined to from here: http://www.josiefraser.com/2016/05/wuked16/

If you want to know more about Wikimedia UK, or how you might make more use of this OER resource, please do let me know and I will ask Josie to add you to the newly-created mailing list.
