 What resources are folks using to teach others how to edit Wikipedia?

In Wikimedia Argentina we've created Wikipedia en el aula[0] for our
workshops and talks. It was specifically oriented to teachers and
students, showing them how to edit and use Wikipedia's contents.

First there were SOPA, PIPA, ACTA and OPEN. Now there is going to be
Yet Another Attempt
to enact draconian legislation through mislabeling the real purpose of
IP legislation by inserting
it as a rider to law supposedly intended to help in combatting
Cyber-terrorism: CISPA.

From the link below:

‎It's a little piece of Sopa [the Stop Online Piracy Act] wrapped up
in a bill that's
supposedly designed to facilitate detection of and defence against
threats. The language is so vague that an ISP could use it to monitor
communications of subscribers for potential infringement of
intellectual property.

In effect this law is directed against file-sharers, not Cyber terrorism.
