Basic training with games
Any child learns faster with games. So, if we create a wikipedia game, children could from an early age, understand and know how to use Wikipedia.

Who are the people you want to introduce Wikipedia to?[edit]

Try to be as specific as possible about this group.
For children and young people. Of public schools mainly.

In what languages do they search for information, online or otherwise?[edit]


In what ways does this group communicate with each other?[edit]

This can include services and apps in social media, mailing lists, physical spaces like conferences or lectures, or at specific institutions like at a library.
By whatsapp and google search engine.

What are some reasons this group would use Wikipedia? How would they benefit from it, or what would they find useful?[edit]

Think about what they would be interested in reading and learning about; does Wikipedia provide better access to information this group cares about?
Because Wikipedia is a great virtual library, they can improve their knowledge of the world.

Project idea[edit]

What language Wikipedia projects will you promote to new readers?[edit]

Portuguese and spanish

How will you communicate with new readers? Will you be communicating with them online, in-person, or both?[edit]

At first, I think that communication would be personal, direct with the groups.

Describe your idea to engage new readers. How might it be implemented? What will you tell people about Wikipedia?[edit]

Think about the steps that might involved to make this idea happen, and what you might teach people about your experience or others' experiences using Wikipedia.
Building games. There are several possibilities of games.

How will you know if this project is successful? What are some outcomes that you can share after the project is completed?[edit]

If you’re not certain about how to respond to this question when starting your idea, you do not need to answer it right now. Campaign participants and Wikimedia Foundation staff can help you consider some options.
Kids love games. They always learn a lot from them. Once deployed, discussion groups could be set up for them to build and cooperate on the internet, with other cultures.

Do you think you can implement this idea? What support do you need?[edit]

Do you need people with specific skills or resources to complete this idea? Are there any financial needs for this project? Do you need advising from Wikimedia Foundation staff?
Of course yes. The main thing is to have time. But with planning, everything can be done. I believe a tech support is what you need most. Computer. Tablet. Internet 4G. But to dedicate myself fully, I need financial support.
