Program Description edit

Our program has been running since 2012 and we are steadily building our network with institutions throughout the Education system. We now have an updated training module in place introducing the course pages extension on Wikipedia. Wikimini is a useful tool for children and their teachers to understand Wikipedia and free licenses. We have worked with key educators in a variety of educational contexts, k-12, higher education, Swedish for immigrants program, International training programs targeting developing countries, and the Swedish non-formal educational system for lifelong learning.
