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.
    • The very first semester of the Wikipedia Education Program in Palestine has gone fairly well. I would like to commend Dr. Johnny Stiban of Birzeit University on successfully integrating Wikipedia assignments into his Cell Biology course, and some of his students for producing great scientific content. The other course at Birzeit University has not proceeded as well, and will be reattempted in the Spring semester. The Wikipedia club at St. George's School has met a few times, but has yet to add content.
