1
00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:02,190
<big><big>I've had the idea 
for a long time that...</big></big>

2
00:00:02,250 --> 00:00:03,919
<big><big>as a history teacher you really
should be good at Wikipedia.</big></big>

3
00:00:03,919 --> 00:00:05,563
<big><big>And understand how it works.</big></big>

4
00:00:06,333 --> 00:00:11,137
<big><big>Because it is the most important source 
for historic knowledge for most people.</big></big>

5
00:00:11,227 --> 00:00:14,735
<big><big>If you want to know anything about
a historic event, Wikipedia is where you go.</big></big>

6
00:00:14,765 --> 00:00:17,412
<big><big>Anyone suggesting otherwise,
is generally lying.</big></big>

8
00:00:22,719 --> 00:00:24,773
<big><big>With this project we've 
been able to...</big></big>

9
00:00:24,773 --> 00:00:27,843
<big><big>work and collaborate with 
a number of teachers,</big></big>

10
00:00:28,373 --> 00:00:30,763
<big><big>who are interested in
learning about how to...</big></big> 

11
00:00:30,786 --> 00:00:32,882
<big><big>assign students to edit Wikipedia.</big></big>

12
00:00:32,987 --> 00:00:35,387
<big><big>As a way to learn about Wikipedia.</big></big>

13
00:00:35,387 --> 00:00:37,627
<big><big>As a way to learn how
to manage information,</big></big>

14
00:00:37,677 --> 00:00:39,487
<big><big>and search for information.</big></big>

15
00:00:39,497 --> 00:00:40,808
<big><big>The topic we focused on...</big></big> 

16
00:00:40,811 --> 00:00:43,642
<big><big>was the local historic and 
cultural context.</big></big>

17
00:00:43,872 --> 00:00:46,502
<big><big>In connection to the history syllabus.</big></big>

18
00:00:46,562 --> 00:00:50,918
<big><big>Since Wikipedia is transparent, 
the students' contributions are visible.</big></big> 

19
00:00:50,989 --> 00:00:54,065
<big><big>Which is how the teachers 
can stay updated.</big></big>

20
00:00:54,195 --> 00:00:56,042
<big><big>What kinds of contributions are 
students making?</big></big>

21
00:00:56,042 --> 00:00:59,780
<big><big>What kinds of problems are they
facing? Or praise from the community?</big></big>

22
00:01:00,130 --> 00:01:02,578
<big><big>These kinds of interactions are visible.</big></big>

23
00:01:03,328 --> 00:01:07,537
<big><big>Which support the use of Wikipedia
as a pedagogical tool</big></big>

24
00:01:07,627 --> 00:01:09,697
<big><big>and give students useful feedback.</big></big>

25
00:01:10,027 --> 00:01:12,166
<big><big>"I've seen you've had this discussion, 
it seems to be going well."</big></big>

26
00:01:12,761 --> 00:01:15,194
<big><big>The students started in the School library.</big></big>

27
00:01:16,614 --> 00:01:18,924
<big><big>We have lots literature on Stockholm...</big></big>

28
00:01:19,484 --> 00:01:22,131
<big><big>and the history of Stockholm and
our local area "Västerort".</big></big>

29
00:01:23,192 --> 00:01:25,357
<big><big>They have also done research online.</big></big>

30
00:01:26,147 --> 00:01:29,047
<big><big>And used available digital sources 
and articles etc.</big></big>

31
00:01:30,667 --> 00:01:33,444
<big><big>It is really satisfying to be 
able to add something to Wikipedia...</big></big>

32
00:01:33,834 --> 00:01:36,844
<big><big>and it's not deleted.</big></big>

33
00:01:38,391 --> 00:01:41,449
<big><big>I don't think I had expected it
to be fun to contribute in that way.</big></big>

34
00:01:42,422 --> 00:01:44,285
<big><big>We're writing about the Church in Bromma.</big></big>

35
00:01:44,435 --> 00:01:48,105
<big><big>We first started editing in 
our sandboxes on Wikipedia.</big></big>

36
00:01:49,585 --> 00:01:52,060
<big><big>Today, we pasted that into the
Wikipedia article.</big></big>

37
00:01:52,110 --> 00:01:56,717
<big><big>Some of it was instantly removed 
by the Wikipedia editors.</big></big>

38
00:01:57,498 --> 00:02:02,188
<big><big>They are more harshly critiqued 
and quickly edited,</big></big> 

39
00:02:02,871 --> 00:02:07,061
<big><big>in a way I would never be able
to do with their texts.</big></big>

40
00:02:07,836 --> 00:02:10,406
<big><big>I find that good and useful.</big></big>

41
00:02:11,104 --> 00:02:14,139
<big><big>The students have taken it well 
and they have been brave about it.</big></big>

42
00:02:14,492 --> 00:02:17,835
<big><big>"I just edited a large piece of 
text and now it's been deleted."</big></big>

43
00:02:18,915 --> 00:02:21,245
<big><big>"All right, why did that happen?"</big></big>

44
00:02:21,915 --> 00:02:24,025
<big><big>That's how they manage to improve 
their work and not giving up...</big></big>

45
00:02:24,025 --> 00:02:25,361
<big><big>thinking it was poorly done.</big></big> 

46
00:02:25,581 --> 00:02:27,111
<big><big>I've gained respect for 
Wikipedia from doing this.</big></big>

47
00:02:27,451 --> 00:02:29,575
<big><big>How relevant it is.</big></big>

48
00:02:29,575 --> 00:02:33,315
<big><big>How statements and facts are tested
and verified by sources.</big></big>

49
00:02:33,685 --> 00:02:35,017
<big><big>The students have 
learnt this too.</big></big>

50
00:02:36,107 --> 00:02:39,987
<big><big>They seem to have enjoyed it
and the authenticity of it.</big></big>

51
00:02:40,030 --> 00:02:41,731
<big><big>That what they write benefits
the real world.</big></big>

52
00:02:41,801 --> 00:02:43,608
<big><big>In a different way from...</big></big>

53
00:02:44,049 --> 00:02:46,406
<big><big>ordinary school work, 
only read by the teacher.</big></big> 

54
00:02:47,297 --> 00:02:51,499
<big><big>It's not unusual that students from the 
age of 17 and older edit Wikipedia.</big></big> 


55
00:02:51,613 --> 00:02:53,449
<big><big>We have seen many good 
examples of that.</big></big>

56
00:02:53,561 --> 00:02:55,594
<big><big>But how can younger students 
contribute?</big></big>

57
00:02:56,606 --> 00:02:59,775
<big><big>Students who are 13, or 11, or 10
or even 8 years old?</big></big>

58
00:03:00,665 --> 00:03:04,583
<big><big>It's too advanced for younger 
students to contribute to Wikipedia.</big></big>

59
00:03:05,223 --> 00:03:09,366
<big><big>Since 2013, there is a Swedish 
encyclopedia called Wikimini.</big></big>

60
00:03:09,753 --> 00:03:16,002
<big><big>It is free and online and created
by children for children aged 8-13.</big></big>

61
00:03:17,117 --> 00:03:18,950
<big><big>I love these kinds of projects.</big></big>

62
00:03:19,057 --> 00:03:22,963
<big><big>It's great fun to be part of it and
I think Wikimini can...</big></big>

63
00:03:23,415 --> 00:03:25,538
<big><big>fit with teaching all 
kinds of subjects.</big></big>

64
00:03:25,905 --> 00:03:30,184
<big><big>It started when I was approached
by Sofia Dahlquist.</big></big> 

65
00:03:30,552 --> 00:03:33,399
<big><big>She works at Stockholmskällan in 
the project "WikiWelcome".</big></big>

66
00:03:33,885 --> 00:03:35,995
<big><big>"WikiWelcome" is a collaboration between
Stockholmskällan,</big></big>

67
00:03:36,065 --> 00:03:39,615
<big><big>a website with facts about Stockholm,</big></big>

68
00:03:39,675 --> 00:03:41,092
<big><big>and Wikimedia Sverige.</big></big>

69
00:03:41,633 --> 00:03:43,669
<big><big>I knew straight away that I 
wanted to participate.</big></big>

70
00:03:44,238 --> 00:03:46,755
<big><big>I asked my colleague Merja 
if she wanted to join.</big></big>

71
00:03:47,332 --> 00:03:49,776
<big><big>She said yes and we got ready 
for starting up the term.</big></big>

72
00:03:50,466 --> 00:03:52,787
<big><big>With a set focus on writing,</big></big>

73
00:03:53,037 --> 00:03:54,877
<big><big>informations skills and facts.</big></big>

74
00:03:55,277 --> 00:03:57,879
<big><big>And working on publishing online.</big></big>

75
00:03:59,070 --> 00:04:03,694
<big><big>We started by identifying the 
favorite sites near the school.</big></big>

76
00:04:03,985 --> 00:04:05,951
<big><big>We went out and took photographs.</big></big>

77
00:04:06,011 --> 00:04:09,991
<big><big>Then we wrote texts together 
for the first time.</big></big>

78
00:04:09,991 --> 00:04:13,381
<big><big>I've seen an interest forming 
in my students.</big></big>

79
00:04:14,871 --> 00:04:19,201
<big><big>I hope they will feel proud
of our local area.</big></big>

80
00:04:20,461 --> 00:04:24,780
<big><big>When we started, students thought 
"Hjulsta is nothing special"</big></big>

81
00:04:25,558 --> 00:04:29,793
<big><big>But there are lots of things 
with Hjulsta to be proud about.</big></big>

82
00:04:30,371 --> 00:04:34,489
<big><big>A big part of this project is about 
understanding what history is.</big></big>

83
00:04:34,937 --> 00:04:38,280
<big><big>How history is created, and 
not a universal thruth.</big></big>

84
00:04:38,733 --> 00:04:42,441
<big><big>It is not a given thing existing
on its own accord.</big></big>

85
00:04:42,890 --> 00:04:45,799
<big><big>But something that is constantly 
created by us humans.</big></big>

86
00:04:45,799 --> 00:04:48,799
<big><big>Influenced by time and context.</big></big>


87
00:04:48,799 --> 00:04:51,401
<big><big>Students learn that historical 
sources can be different things.</big></big>

88
00:04:51,767 --> 00:04:55,354
<big><big>It can be images as well as 
texts and stories.</big></big>

89
00:04:55,840 --> 00:04:59,548
<big><big>This is where platser.se 
comes in as platform.</big></big>

90
00:04:59,954 --> 00:05:03,791
<big><big>Here you can write stories
which do not have a place...</big></big>

91
00:05:03,859 --> 00:05:06,637
<big><big>in a history book or even
in an encyclopedia.</big></big>

92
00:05:07,049 --> 00:05:10,307
<big><big>But it is still a story connected 
to a specific place.</big></big>

93
00:05:10,616 --> 00:05:13,561
<big><big>When students write their own
story about a place at platser.se,</big></big>

94
00:05:13,750 --> 00:05:16,986
<big><big>or publish someoneelse's story, who
they've interviewed.</big></big>

95
00:05:17,425 --> 00:05:21,624
<big><big>They contribute to the preservation 
of immaterial culture heritage.</big></big>

96
00:05:21,855 --> 00:05:25,012
<big><big>By saving stories, 
they're doing a real historic effort.</big></big>

97
00:05:25,378 --> 00:05:29,453
<big><big>They´re doing a real collection, 
and contribution for future historians.</big></big>

98
00:05:29,858 --> 00:05:31,952
<big><big>Write history with your students to!</big></big>

99
00:05:32,296 --> 00:05:35,887
<big><big>WikiWelcome is a collaboration between...</big></big>

100
00:05:36,035 --> 00:05:39,640
<big><big>Stockholmskällan 
and Wikimedia Sverige.</big></big>
