Wiki conference for teachers in Ohrid
Summary: Wiki conference for teachers was held in Ohrid where 67 teachers from that area of the Republic of Macedonia were trained to use and edit Wikipedia.
On 16 November 2018 GLAM Macedonia organized Wiki conference for teachers in Ohrid, in front of 67 teachers coming from that area of the Republic of Macedonia. The interest in participation was significant, as we expected. Three speakers, all members of GLAM Macedonia, two of them teachers in the real life, gave introductory talks about Wikipedia and the teaching process. Speakers in the conference were:
- Zana Strkovska - High school teacher
- Natasa Nedanoska - teacher in secondary school, and also Coordinator of education program at GLAM Macedonia user group
- Gordana Jovik-Stojkovska - writer and ex-WiR, Board member of GLAM Macedonia
A survey of the meeting participants was held after the event, and the results were surprising: 42% of participants said that they are ready to use in the classroom what they learned about, 25 participants want to join the GLAM Macedonia activities, and 72% of participants found the booklet "How instructors are teaching with Wikipedia" useful.
