The third consortium meeting Motech in Koszalin took place from the 17th until the 20th of June 2014. T
The aims of the two-day workshop were to:
- show Wikipedia and present its features (neutral point of view, verifiability, no original research,)
- inform about copyrights
- learn how to create a new Wikipedia entry in respect of the correct style ( common language and editorial mistakes)
- how to test a new entry,
- how to travel through hypertext,
- how to use the encyclopedia for educational purposes.
Because of the fact that the workshop took place in the period of Corpus Christi, one of the most important catholic ceremonies, this event became the main keynote of the meeting. Firstly, the participants listened to Alicja Lorenz, the Religious Education teacher trainer who presented the history of this event and explained its role in the catholic church. Then, they participated in a traditional religious procession in order to take pictures for their entry in Wikipedia ( religious events in the countries of the workshop participants ). Furthermore, they listened to Urszula Rusiak, the science teacher trainer who presented the features of the Wikipedia encyclopedia. Finally, they were taught how to create articles in the Wikipedia encyclopedia.
