Abstract[edit | edit source]

Education and GLAM projects are a major direction for Wikimedia Armenia, we currently have several projects on both education and GLAM. We see the future of WMAM educational projects in further collaboration with different universities and schools, and the expansion of the idea of WikiClubs and WikiClassrooms in all settlements of Armenia. The future of GLAM projects is more collaboration and integration of different GLAM institutions through Wikipedia and Wikimedia projects. In order to picture the context, several projects will be discussed:

  • WikiCamps
  • WikiClubs
  • Teachers’ Wikipedia courses
  • Thematic content development initiatives
  • GLAM projects

Session Outcomes[edit | edit source]

  • How interconnected and interdependent projects and initiatives contribute to the development of Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects and how they can engage people with different backgrounds, ages, and gender
  • How to deepen the impact of Wikimedia projects on education and ensure the penetration of Wikipedia to schools and universities
  • What are the best practices of cooperation with GLAM institutions

I'm planning to attend this session live![edit | edit source]
