In Belgium, the Walloon government (or de la Région wallonne) sponsors a program called "Digital Schools," which is part of its new plan for ICT education service («Ecole numérique – Un nouveau plan TIC au service de l’éducation»). One of Wikimedia Belgium's education program initiatives is at the Institut Sainte Marie Châtelet. This project is called Web 2.0 Education à la Citoyenne-Tic and it was one of the winners of the government's Digital School program. Read more about this ICT Citizen project on French Wikipedia here and here.
In Catalonia, there are partnerships with local autonomous government of the Balearic Islands (Govern de les Illes Balears) and the general manager of educational innovation and teacher training. The aim of this partnership is to combine the richness of the many educational systems and the diversity of languages in which many students attend their lessons across the Catalan-speaking territories.
One project called Viquilletra (or Wikiletter), which developed Wikipedia articles about Catalan literature, was a collaboration among Amical Viquipèdia, the Open University of Catalonia (UOC), and the Education Department (Departament d'Ensenyament). The teachers from the ESO (Secundaria Obligatoria, or compulsory secondary education) also worked on Catalan literature by topics. This pilot was to be piloted in ten educational centers.
Another project called Viquibalear was a multilingual educational project and regional article writing competition for secondary school students. The Department of Pedagogical Innovation confirmed economic support of 4.000€ for the 2010-2011 academic year to implement the project in schools.
Wikimedia Eesti in Estonia has forged a cooperation with the Estonian Ministry of Education and Research. Since 2013, there were discussions with the Ministry about their possible support for piloting a large scope project to introduce Wikipedia in secondary schools of Estonia.
In December 2013, the project "Wikipedization of Research Writings of Secondary School Students" kicked off. The project included paid staff for training (1 FTE) and for coordination activities (0.5 FTE), totaling 1.5 FTE. Although contacts were established with 12 schools, only 6 of them participated in the project.
In October 2014, the French Ministry of Education recognized Wikimedia France as an educational partner in public education. This agreement was issued for a period of 5 years.
The entity which granted this approval is called the General Directorate of School Education (la direction générale de l'enseignement scolaire or DGESCO).
WMFR showed them the possibilities offered by the use of Wikimedia projects to construct educational scenarios. Read more about this partnership in English and in French.
Meanwhile, Wikimedia Deutschland and other non-governmental organizations created a Coalition of Open Education to allow for the strategic positioning and collaborative writing of statements and political position papers about OER.

In June 2014, an agreement was reached between the Israeli Ministry of Education, Wikimedia Israel (WMIL), and the Wikimedia Foundation. This agreement changed Israel's national educational curricula. Teachers and students now must learn how to contribute to new or incomplete Wikipedia articles about academic topics for which information is lacking or inadequate, including history, geography, and science.
The incorporation of reading and writing Wikipedia articles as part of Israel’s “Meaningful Learning” program (here, in Hebrew) is aimed at equipping students with knowledge and skills relevant to the 21st century.
This resolution represents a significant step for Wikimedia Israel but is not without its challenges. Developing a national plan for hundreds of teachers and thousands of students is a complicated undertaking, facing issues such as scale, article quality and coordination with the community. Internal disagreements within the Ministry slowed down activities with gifted students and required that WMIL's ED deal with internal politics in the Ministry.
This was a time-consuming endeavor, which will hopefully not further impede the chapter’s activities with teachers and students.
The positive attitude of the Ministry of Education to Wikipedia as a useful teaching tool, and its allocation of resources to promote the use of Wikipedia among teachers, contributes greatly to the positive image of Wikipedia among educators and the general public. This agreement was the first systematic collaboration between an education system and the Wikimedia movement.
Additionally, in March 2015, Wikimedia Israel, the Israeli Ministry of Education, and the Center for Educational Technology organized an educators' conference dealing with educational use of Wikipedia. The conference was the conclusion to the first round of teachers' online courses about the use of Wikipedia in the classroom. The course was co-developed by the three organizing bodies. About 100 teachers participated in the course along with senior officials from the Israeli Ministry of Education, WMIL representatives and the Hebrew Wikipedia community.

Wikimedia Philippines collaborated with Smart Communications, the local provider of Wikipedia Zero, and the Department of Education (or DepEd).
The three joined forces for the "Tap and Learn: Tablets for Education" Training Roadshow. It was an outreach program for public school teachers to introduce the use of tablets for classroom education. During this project, Filipino Wikipedia editors trained educators from public elementary and secondary schools across the country about using Wikipedia to enhance the learning experience of students.
The training will also be useful for the educators' professional development.To learn about this program, please review the Tap & Learn Training Roadshow Activity Reports on the WMPH wiki.
In September 2014, the Serbian Ministry of Education prescribed that all students in the second year of secondary school curriculum must study wiki tools. Following that, Serbia's Institute for the Advancement of Education (Завод за унапређивање образовања и васпитања) included a course on Wikipedia in its catalog of accredited programs for continuous professional development of teachers, professors and other school personnel. This accreditation lasts for two years: the 2014/15 and 2015/16 academic years. The first course was to be offered beginning in December 2014.
Wikimedia Serbia hosted numerous meetings, discussions and consultations with several partners led to the creation of the course “Usage of Wikipedia in teaching and learning”. It took eight months of waiting and several levels of evaluation in order to receive accreditation. Over the next two years, teachers, staff and school administrators will have the opportunity to attend these courses. According to the catalog criteria, the course carries 8 points and takes the same number of hours to complete. It is designed for all categories but its priority area is strengthening the professional capacity of staff, particularly in the area of innovative teaching approach and methods.
There are a number of aims of this project. Familiarizing teachers with the rules and procedures to use the content on the Internet: openness, availability, licensing of content on the Internet, respect for intellectual property. Training teachers to connect and organize teaching contents of one or more objects in thematic units using wiki tools. Training teachers to find, use and enrichment of the content on the Internet using new technology. Applying new technologies in the learning process through the use of wiki tools. 
Wikimedia Serbia and the Academic Board of the Wikimedia Serbia are working hard on the preparation of teaching for its first participants.
WMRS believes that this course is a major step forward in the development of their educational programs because training teachers enables them to train their students and to increase the general knowledge of Wikipedia and its possibilities among the student population in Serbia.

Wikimedia UK is working with Jisc. Jisc, or the Joint Information Systems Committee, is a registered charity, focusing on the use of digital technologies in UK education and research. The partnership encourages a range of audiences (librarians, teachers, researchers and students) within learning and research to engage with Wikimedia UK and Wikimedia projects for mutual benefit. This links Wikimedia, research impact, and open education. Read more about this partnership in the education newsletter here.
Wikimedia Uruguay's Wikipedia Education Program is partnering with CFE and CEIBAL to developing a project on the subject Wikipedia in Education. CFE is the Consejo de Formación en Educación — the Board of Education — and CEIBAL is the socio-educational portal of Plan Ceibal (a gateway to hundreds of learning objects).
Uruguay has 32 teacher training institutes which are CFE-dependent, along with a total of 2,671 teachers, and 20,391 students. These institutes train all teachers in primary and secondary education in Uruguay.
Involving teacher training students in activities conducted in conjunction with teacher educators in reflection on the educational uses of Wikipedia will stimulate the use of Wikipedia in the processes of teaching and learning. The aim is to provide the theoretical, methodological and technical training, aimed at fostering the development of skills for use on Wikipedia, and by its use, critical reading and editing, and creating free educational content in collaborative workspaces using wiki technology.
