Succesfull WikiWomen Bootcamp in Donostia
Besides the Wikipedia trainings, all WikiWomen partners met to discuss the next steps in the three-year project. Together with the participants of the Wikipedia trainings, the first concrete ideas about the final goal of the project came into being: developing the teaching materials for high schools in which Wikipedia is used to teach digital skills, social engagement and language skills in the minority language, and in which there is a focus on biographies about women.
The next transnational meeting will take place in 2023, in Monaghan, Ireland. By then, the first version of the teaching materials will be created and piloted in Frisian, Irish and Basque high schools and teachers and pupils will come along on an exchange. The exchange will consist of a sort of ‘Wikithons’, in which the pupils from the different countries come into contact and work on their Wikipedia texts together. Afterwards, the materials will be developed and improved further.
