Event name[edit]

The seventh World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE)

Participant connections[edit]

I have met many people specialized in various fields related to education. Among the interesting possible partners is Ms. Mariecar Fernando. She is a program manager in Ayala Foundation who is interested in introducing Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects in her institution. There is also Mr. Derrick Hann, program coordinator in College of the North Atlantic in Qatar who is enthusiastic about Wiki projects. Another interesting person would be Mr. Costa Constantinou, director of educational services in Veema Education, a teacher training institution. Right now I'm exchanging emails with them to discuss how to get started. Find the detailed list of connections and topics discussed here.

Outcome[edit]

Option 1: Shared Experience: What is one way you shared something from your experience with your community (either locally or globally), after the event?
My blog post.

In addition to sharing my experience with the community, all the outcomes of my participation are also detailed in "My achievements" section in this blog post. In summary, I managed to get many people interested in editing Wikipedia and running a WEP. Right now, I have a scheduled an online meeting this week with Veema's representative, Mr. Constantinou. I'm also exchanging emails with Mr. Hann and Ms. Fernando to see how can they introduce Wikipedia in their institutions.
