From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Welcome back from Wikimania 2018!

Add a link here to a blog post or newsletter you wrote about your participation afterwards, or to a meet-up you organized to share your experience with your local community.

Cape Town was my 2nd Wikimania. As I am a WEP coordinator and mentor, I tried to learn about several aspect of Wikimedia Education Program, Partnership and Engaging volunteers. I was taught many things in these matters from Wassan Anmol's presentations. I learned how non-wiki activities can play a great role in motivating students and making Wikimedian community to survive. Another things I learned from his presentation is Following is a method to keep students editing up. I learned how Wikimedia Student Association can be useful to encourage students from Pavanaja's Presentation. I will use these methods in my next course of WEP.

The importance of awareness of Wikipedia was one of great things I learned from Satdeep and Zack's presentation. "How can to introduce Wikipedia?" was a question I got its answer through the presentation. I learned making a story based on cultural direction of any community can bridge the people awareness of Wikipedia. It will be useful for me to introduce Wikipedia in my local community.

The most inspiring things I learned is History of Education Program in Egypt, especially the structure of the program.Walaa taught me how must use editing Wikipedia as classroom assignment and how to convince professors to choose spreading free knowledge instead of traditional assignment that I plan to use in the next WEP.
