In 2015 and 2016, Wikimedia Hong Kong will focus on the Wikipedia Education Program.

Wikipedia Education Program

Wikimedia Hong Kong had on its very first Wikipedia Education Program in spring 2015. We began the program with the School of Humanities at Hang Seng Management College. Students from the college were invited to edit the articles about literature and linguistics on Wikipedia. Articles related to literature and linguistics are not as numerous as other topics. Some articles have incomplete information too. We hope that students would share their knowledge to improve the quantity and the quality of the related pages through this program. At the same time, we hope to educate students about how to use Wikipedia with the appropriate attitude. In March, we had an introductory talk for the students. A workshop about editing Wikipedia was organised in April.

We collected 17 entries from the students, mainly related to linguistics. All the entries are informative and we are so happy to have the students participating in the program.

Here is the list of the articles the students edited in the Wikipedia Education Program.

  • Suffix
  • Gender in English
  • Articulatory phonetics
  • Fricative consonant
  • Manner of articulation
  • Schwa
  • Speech organ
  • Stress and vowel reduction in English
  • Part of speech
  • Finite verb
  • Turn Constructional Units
  • Contrastive Analysis
  • Psycholinguistics
  • Conversation Analysis
  • Turn-Taking
  • Deixis
  • Order of Acquisition

As the pilot program is quite successful, Wikimedia Hong Kong would like to continue the Wikipedia Education Program in Hang Seng Management College in the coming semester, which would be from January to April 2016. At the same time, Wikimedia Hong Kong would like to cooperate with the secondary schools in Hong Kong , by offering the lectures about Wikipedia and Wikipedia Education Program, in order to educate the students using the Wikipedia with correct attitude.

Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 (Not Confirmed yet)

Wikimedia Hong Kong is planning to do the Wiki Loves Monuments competition in 2016. Due to the lack of human resources, Wikimedia Hong Kong was not able to participate in the competition in 2015. Wikimedia Hong Kong would like to join the competition again in 2016, and it will start to prepare for it earlier.
