Feedback at WikiSym and Wikimania 2013
My impressions from the discussions at WikiSym and Wikimania 2013.
- Age groups. Wikipedia Primary School sounds like a project related to a age group (children), which is not necessarily the project focus. The project is more related to content than to people. Primary school in particular in low income countries and in challenging contest does not necessarily mean education for children.
- Links to current research. The project could benefit of research which at the moment doesn't have a thematic focus, i.e. assessment of Wikipedia articles, articles relations, current use of sources, Wikiprojects... It could represent a case study or an applied case for some of the current research if researchers are interested/willing to contribute.
- Articles (language and structure). The project could link with other projects related to Wikipedia for children (i.e. WikiKids, Wikimini...); it is also specifically relevant how access to Wikipedia on mobile phones (Wikipedia Zero) is rising the issue of how articles could be better structured to allow them to be more browsable on small screens or through sms (summaries, tables, structure of the paragraphs...).
- It is worth to add the project among the [[Research:Projects|research projects related to Wikipedia and the Wikimedia projects]. It is a way to inform about projects and to follow a more shared and transparent approach.
- The project implicitly criticizes offline Wikipedia distribution and Wikipedia Zero. In reality I didn't mean to criticized them, I actually consider those initiatives great opportunities which could maybe be reinforced by improving content.
