In 2020, the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit that operates Wikipedia, launched a three-country pilot that taught secondary school teachers how to use Wikipedia to develop media and information literacy skills among their students. In this webinar, we will share the results of the pilot, and how educators can build their capacity to teach with Wikipedia.
