AbstractWiki-school program is the main element of the new educational strategy at Wikimedia Poland. The main goal is to make a certain number and type of schools introduce (ideally: permanently) into the educational program focused on the theory and practice of Wikipedia and its sister projects (Wikisource, Wiktionary, Wikimedia Commons and others). It will be built on the basis of a new model of cooperation developed by Wikipedia members together with teachers (e.g. the MOOC for the teachers will be built with special customization included). 14 schools from various cities in Poland applied for the pilote phase of project. Each of the schools is represented by the leader - here are primarily Polish Literature teachers: enthusiasts of using ICT tools in education and modern teaching methods, recognized authors of textbooks, award-winning educators and educational bloggers. As part of the strategy, the specific objectives of the program have been formulated: ● Objective 1 Creating participatory methods of educational tools for conducting pilot lessons/classes on digital competences using Wikipedia in Polish language classes and / together - IT and/or history. ● Objective 2 To increase knowledge and significantly increase teachers' competence in teaching key digital competences ● Objective 3 Strengthening pro-social attitudes in student communities and teaching staff participating in the school program ● Objective 4 The permanent presence of grafted knowledge and tools in the school's program and ecosystem
