[Wikimedia Education] You're invited! Reading Wikipedia in the Classroom - open meeting

Dear Wikimedians,

[Please, excuse the cross-posting!]

We know how crucial media and information literacy skills are in today's
world and we see the opportunities in the use of Wikipedia as a pedagogical
tool. So how can we continue to support educators to integrate Wikipedia
into their classrooms to foster these skills?

Last year, the Education team at the Wikimedia Foundation launched the Reading
Wikipedia in the Classroom
<https://wikimediafoundation.org/our-work/education/reading-wikipedia-in-the-classroom/>
program in 3 pilot countries: Bolivia, Morocco, and the Philippines. We
worked with local coordinators from the Wikimedia affiliates in each
country to provide an online professional development opportunity to close
to 1000 secondary school teachers
<https://diff.wikimedia.org/2020/12/10/nearly-1000-teachers-participate-in-reading-wikipedia-in-the-classroom-pilot/>
with a localized curriculum
<https://diff.wikimedia.org/2021/04/02/a-three-module-teachers-guide-about-reading-wikipedia-in-the-classroom-is-now-available-on-commons/>
that aligns Wikipedia with UNESCO’s Media and Information Literacy
framework.

We would like to invite you to an open meeting where the Education team and
the pilot’s local coordinators will share the experiences of the program:
the curriculum design, the methodology, the impact, and the next steps for
you to get involved!

You can join us on one of these two dates via Zoom:

Hi Z!

I hope you're having a nice week. Thank you for reaching out and for your
interest in the project. Yes, the open meetings will be recorded and we
will share the corresponding links when they're available via this mailing
list as well. If you want to send in some questions in advance, please feel
free to email me.

Cheers!
