The 3rd International Conference on Education 2017
There were about 150 participants in the conference. On the first day of the conference, I gave a presentation about Wikipedia being used as teaching tools for higher education, and about 30 people attended the session.
I shared my experience as a Wikipedian with other participants in the session. It is a new idea for the educators in Asia to use Wikipedia as the teaching tools, since many participants in the conference, who are also scholars, believe that Wikipedia should not be considered as an ideal academic reference for research, and they tend to not to use Wikipedia for teaching. I introduced them the Wikipedia Education Program, and some of them told me that they are interested in the program and would like to know more about it, to see if it is possible for them to use Wikipedia for their students.
