Information to Knowledge to Wisdom.
Wiki, is a good means for it. In 1960's, while I was in School, It took 7-8 days to get to know something, .. Newspapers would arrive a day late, Postal Mails would arrive in a week.
In 1980's & 1990's, while my kids were in School, It took 2 days to get to know, ... say Where's Atlas Mountains, go to Library, find Book, if you can't find, go to Central Library, Search & Search, ..... Newspapers would arrive in the morning & They were the fountain of Discussion, Phone Calls after 11 PM in the night (due to quarter charge).
In 2010's, while my grandkid is studying, It takes a minute to get to know, ... Info is just Signal & Li Ion Battery Charge away. Newspapers can't publish all the news from Internet. When I show Delhi in Rashtriya Atlas to My Grand Kid, Her question is Where is the Blue Dot? Maps for her means Google Maps, where Blue Dot shows My Location.
Wiki, is one exhilarating aspect of this journey. Feels good to be part of it.

[Wikipedia & Education User Group] Updates: November 2018
Integrating Wikimedia with education is a powerful strategy for the outreach of Wikimedia projects. Realising this concept, a group of leaders promoted this and formed the Wikipedia Education Collaborative. After some time, this evolved to become a user group, officially recognised by the Affiliations Committee in June 2018. The user group had its first board elections earlier in September. In the process to formalise activities and give a shape the user group for long-term sustainability, we are now revamping our processes. Thanks for supporting us during incubation stages, we are now inviting you to formally join the user group by following the instructions on the members' page. Being a member will allow you to be a part of this wonderful collaboration and also do interesting stuff.

The 2021 Community Wishlist Survey is now open! This survey is the process where communities decide what the Community Tech team should work on over the next year. We encourage everyone to submit proposals until the deadline on 30 November, or comment on other proposals to help make them better. The communities will vote on the proposals between 8 December and 21 December.
The Community Tech team is focused on tools for experienced Wikimedia editors. You can write proposals in any language, and we will translate them for you. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing your proposals!

We invite all registered users to vote on the 2021 Community Wishlist Survey. You can vote from now until 21 December for as many different wishes as you want.
In the Survey, wishes for new and improved tools for experienced editors are collected. After the voting, we will do our best to grant your wishes. We will start with the most popular ones.
We, the Community Tech, are one of the Wikimedia Foundation teams. We create and improve editing and wiki moderation tools. What we work on is decided based on results of the Community Wishlist Survey. Once a year, you can submit wishes. After two weeks, you can vote on the ones that you're most interested in. Next, we choose wishes from the survey to work on. Some of the wishes may be granted by volunteer developers or other teams.
We are waiting for your votes. Thank you!
