Our Values

The Education Team strives to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to participate in the Wikimedia movement as both consumers and contributors to open knowledge. That’s why we value inclusion. Living this value means prioritizing work that facilitates participation for people who are currently left out for various reasons.
Our team supports each other to grow personally and professionally. As our team continues working with our communities we continue to learn and grow. We look to explore new pathways, relationships, and opportunities to help us get better at what we do. We aim to use our diverse backgrounds to amplify the voices of underrepresented people and communities doing work for Wikimedia and education to grow the use of the Wikimedia projects in education.

Fellowship Program

Since 2018, the Education Team has facilitated a Fellowship program that brings students from related fields and disciplines onto the team for a semester or a year to learn about the value of Wikimedia in Education and to contribute to the Foundation through a research project.

Priyal Gala and Meng Zhou

On Wednesday Feb 12, 2020, Priyal Gala and Meng Zhou from the George Washington University International Education Program shared the amazing work they've been doing over the last 16 weeks conducting background research on the education systems of the three countries partnering with the Education Team on the Reading Wikipedia in the Classroom project: the Philippines, Morocco, and Bolivia. Their research is helping us to understand how this project can work within the existing systems, and improve outcomes for teachers, students, and the Wikimedia movement.
