WikiSkills: Empowering and fostering social, professional, cultural and civic skills through pedagogical use of Wiki technologies and methodologies

As part of the WikiSkills project, partners organized a series of conferences in Spain, Belgium and Greece. Each national event intended to inform about the existence of this great opportunity to empower wiki-culture. These events acted as forums among scientists, educational practitioners, wikipedians and professionals linked to web2.0, to share good practices around the use of wiki.

The aim of the events was to promote the use of wiki as a powerful tool in the current educational society, as well as to develop and consolidate a sustainable community of practice.
