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.

 What resources are folks using to teach others how to edit Wikipedia? At
 Wikipedia Academies etc?
 
 
 
 Here are some materials we have used at workshop, especially the one-day

Re: [Wikimedia-l] teaching people how to edit Wikipedia

2012-04-12 Thread Ziko van Dijk
Hello,

Myself, I have a presentation which shows a basic wiki principle; I
noticed that showing the same thing onwiki would make me jumping too
much from page to page.
Showing Wikipedia functionalities then onwiki I call Wikipedia
surfing (version history, talk pages etc.).
If it is a workshop with the intention to make people edit then I
create a pseudo encyclopedia on user subpages. That's a number of
simplified Wikipedia articles with hardly any markup. From article to
article, the complexity and amount of wikisyntax grows. The newbies in
groups of 2 correct the language and content (I put in some errors for
them).
I prefer that because editing real WP makes people anxious, and I want
to be undisturbed with the newbies.
Kind regards
Ziko

Thanks, Ziko. That's really interesting and sounds like an effective way of 
getting them started. 

I'm curious what kinds of problems people contact you about when they start 
editing for real?

Have a look at the Outreach Bookshelf:

Welcome to Wikipedia is well-used by Wikimedia UK.

(And if anyone else has outreach materials, please do add them to the
Bookshelf)
