Program Description[edit]

Project: Wikipedia in University 2014[edit]

  • This is the third version of this project organized by Wikimedia Chile.
  • The pilot project consisted of teaching law students in Coquimbo, from the Catholic University of the North, on editing Wikipedia.
  • The second implementation consisted of teaching law students in Valparaiso, from the University of Valparaíso, on editing Wikipedia.
  • We met with a teacher from University of Chile interested in implementing Wikipedia as an educational tool.
  • First Course
  • Second Course

Project: Wikipedia in University 2013[edit]

  • This was the second version of this pilot project organized by Wikimedia Chile.
  • The pilot project consisted of teaching law students in Coquimbo, from the Catholic University of the North, on editing Wikipedia.
  • This class studying Legal History II created and wrote seven articles about the Chilean codification process from the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century as a part of their regular curriculum.
  • Since one of our volunteers was a teacher of this college, the purpose of this project is to move out of the “comfort zone” and seek two new universities which to present and develop this idea (preliminary contacts have been established).
  • The initial goal is to reach a similar amount of students per University (39 for the pilot project), and keep a similar or better percentage of editing retention (8%).

Project: Wikipedia in the Classroom 2013[edit]

  • This project is on hold until further notice
  • This would be a new project for Wikimedia Chile
  • It would be ideal to have at least one school with one complete grade working on this, aiming for a number of 40-80 students, and monitoring their editing retention.
  • The project goal is to organize an activity gathering schools interested in incorporating Wikipedia editing into curricular assignments and to build a strong relationship with one of them.
