Part of the Wikipedia Challenge: Become A Contemporary Encyclopedist

As part of the Panhellenic Student Competition: “Become A Contemporary Encyclopedist“, Onassis Education begins preparing school teams with a series of interactive online webinars that will introduce students and teachers of secondary education in Greece and abroad, in the world of the largest digital encyclopedia.

The webinars are open to all and aim to acquaint participants with Wikipedia, the culture, the principles and the practical issues that a budding Wikipedian will encounter entering the digital environment, such as the choice of sources, copyright issues, the correct wording, etc.
