WikiWelcome: students creating history and sharing knowledge about their neigborhood in present, past, and future.
The session will explain and provide examples to demonstrate the WikiWelcome project in Sweden. It will examine some of the project’s discoveries and their final outcomes. The examples presented are based on a Swedish model, but the method is transferable to various learning environments. The session will inspire museums, archives, and educators worldwide to generate their own local WikiWelcome projects, creating an educational program to promote a platform where free knowledge can easily be shared.
