This group aims to promote the concept of Wikimedia and Education beyond the Wikimedia movement. This includes advocating for the use of Wikimedia projects as pedagogic tools, both for students (to learn) and for educators (to teach), to the global educational community, educational organisations, and international organisations such as UNESCO. In other words, this can be said as expanding the EduWiki community by proactively reaching out to educators across the globe.
