Flag of Greece Greece[edit]

Inputs for the conference

  • Valuable learnings:

- Extensive experience in Wikimedia Education projects, lately using the innovative sandbox tool (secondary, i.e. Middle and High School).

- Linking of a Wikimedia school project with app development on MIT's CC-licensed AppInventor.

- Getting mentally ill patients actively involved in Wikimedia Education Projects, and taking it a step farther with Wikitherapy

  • Strengths: Wikitherapy - i.e., Bringing the Wikimedia projects into therapy settings with patients adding value - has been piloted in Greece and replicated in Argentina. Interest has been expressed from Germany, Spain and India to apply the concept in their communities: see here for details.
  • Weaknesses: Recruiting editors to help develop the offline medical Wikipedia app in Greek. Currently medical content on Greek Wikipedia is lagging far behind other languages and I would like to explore ideas on how to improve the situation (e.g. how to attract health professionals to become Wikipedia editors, or about using IIAB in healthcare settings to demonstrate medical Wikipedia's value to a target recruitment audience: has it been done in Africa, and with what success?)

Flag of Germany Germany[edit]

Inputs for the conference

  • Valuable learnings:
  • Strengths: How to collaborate with cultural institutions (I got certified by the German Commission for UNESCO on 9 September 2018).
  • Weaknesses: How to retain new users. I have some success in that but have no solution that really works.
