One of the main peculiarities of the Wikipedia Education Program in Ukraine, as compared to the international community, is a particularly strong involvement of secondary school teachers and students. It has sparked an interesting phenomenon, whereby middle and high school teachers are using Wikipedia and its sister projects for educational purposes no less actively than university professors. Therefore, in my talk, I will discuss the role of secondary education in the Wikipedia Education Program from the perspective of the Ukrainian case study. I will share some interesting details of the Ukrainian experience and will pay particular attention to Wikimedia Ukraine’s experience of preparing a handbook on the use of Wikipedia in educational space for teachers.
