More to learn[edit]

Further details about what I would like to learn.

1. Designing and developing educational programs (educational program design and implementation - such as Reading Wikipedia in the Classroom, tactics to work with educational partners, promoting media and information literacy, digital literacy and 21st-century skills, training resources and methods for teachers and/or students, technological support, online safety issues, youth engagement and safety, education policy advocacy, evaluation in educational programs)

Explanation: It is obvious that we now live in a digital world hence bringing education in its digital form is the gateway now and i will love to be part of the team that will liberate students in the various communities who do not have access to educational online materials

2. Use various tools related to community health ( Quarry, or Wikidata Query, Phabricator, specifically to promote community health. Additionally, write your own tools or contribute to the specification or development of tools)

3. Lua scripting This is completely new and it will be a great opportunity to learn about it and utilize it

Stories about sharing[edit]

Interesting stories about applying the skills I want to share.

1. Small editing events, campaigns and contests (Local instances of global campaigns or activities (e.g. local Wiki Loves Monuments, #WikiForHumanRights, WikiGap events). Local editing events designed to work with partners or new audiences who need hands-on training. Facilitation skills on and offline)

Explanation: I am currently a facilitator at the Dagbani Wikimedians User Group and we have organised events, contest and campaigns since 2020 with success with our metrics always beyond the set targets.

2. Effective training for newcomers/ newcomer experience (specific strategies for newcomers from underrepresented communities, outreach strategies, investing in areas to reduce barriers, making newcomers feel welcome, connecting with existing networks and communities, training methods and tools, off-line and online events to engage newcomers, organizing training, ways to measure learning, ways to evaluate training experience)

Explanation: I am the project lead for the Gurene Wikimedia community which allows me to meet newcommers almost now and then and we have maintained and develop the skills of some of them to help others in basic wikipedia knowledge.

3. Skills that are important for managing teams and volunteers (adaptability, team-building, self-awareness, problem-solving, mentoring, assertive communication)

Explanation: I am a strong team player and it helped me work with people from diverse cultural background and we have achieved great success in different organizations i have had the opportunity to serve
