06 Apr 2019

I’m writting this blog post from Donostia-San Sebastian (Basque Country) where I am participating to Wikimedia+Education Conference in Wikimedia Movement. Before sharing my experience there here is some context: …user groups and affiliates are developing Education Programs elsewhere, teachers are using wikis (and not only Wikimedia) as a teaching resource, students are using Wikipedia to complete their assignments… and are even doing assignments on Wikipedia. Education community and Wikimedia movement are two sides of the same broad idea: knowledge must be accessible to every humankind. I am representing Wikimedia Community User Group in the event and will share our planns for the Wiki in Education projects we are already working on implementing in Albania.

Traveling to San Sebastian and opening ceremony

i arrived in San San Sebastian Friday evening and managed to be just in time for the opening ceremony. The event was hosted in the town hall (current the city library) - built in 1817 and the between 1828 and 1832, which is next to the Constitution Square. Photos from the opening ceremony can be found here commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Wikipedia%2BEducation_Conference_2019_opening_ceremony

First day of the conference

(to de udpated)

Second Day

Starting with a lot of rain, aparently a characteristic of the city, I continued working on the blog post and followed quite interesting sessions.

I will be updating this post as the event progresses in the next days. In the mean time here are some updates on Twitter: twitter.com/search?q=%23EduWiki2019&src=tyah
