Please tell us something special about your education program that the data may not reveal. For example:

  • You could highlight an achievement you are particularly proud of.
  • You could acknowledge a special student, educator, or volunteer.
  • You could tell us what you enjoy most about the Wikipedia Education Program.

You would find it difficult to find a program outside of the US/Canada that does more (as much?) as we do and we dont have an entire foundation dedicated to us. We have organically grown almost entirely on our own, and sometimes against wiki-politics. We did the first educations mini-doc which only scratches the surface of the amount we have done... though it gives a good overview of the innovation of Tec de Monterrey campuses.

Your questions neglect other ways students get involved, community service and Semana i, which are not classes. Most of our student contributions and really the best of them, have come from servicio social, primarily because students self-select and they need to complete quite a few hours, which gives Wiki Learning a unique resource to draw upon. Semana i has been a mixed bag, as the Tec is learning how to implement this particular innovation. The next one is scheduled for September 2016 to allow for the planning of better and more varied challenges.
