Sum of all paintings: my local artist

The project is finalized to publish information about the artworks of a painter born in a small town, currently mainly exposed in his birthplace museum. The collection will be documented by students of the local high school, along with pictures and information about the painter's life, his social environment, technique and subjects of his paintings.

Goals[modifica | modifica wikitesto]

The project is in the European DigComp.2.1 framework[1] to support students in developing skills about:

  • information and data literacy;
  • communication and collaboration;
  • digital content creation;
  • problem solving.

"Safety" will not be addressed in this project.

Problem tree[modifica | modifica wikitesto]

Problem The problems that exist in your education context
Wikipedia is not considered a reliable support for learning activities
Students and teachers are not motivated to create Wikipedia contents
The problems that exist in your Wikimedia community
Difficult discrimination between encyclopedic local contents and localisms
Problematic online collaboration between experienced users and new  ones
Problems existing in currently running Wikimedia education programs
Local contents are usually partially addressed already, so contents creation cannot be used to support a standard curriculum in a structured way
Local topics can be biased by promotional contents, so their integration in learning projects could be problematic
Creation of online content is usually considered as a pure online activity, carried out integrating other online contents instead of going through a standard bibliographic research
Causes Do a "5 Whys" activity for the cards on your slide and write the root causes under each card
Poor Wiki user interface usability
Lack of information literacy skills
Lack of digital content creation skills
Lack of communication and collaboration skills
Lack of problem solving skills
Effects Local contents coverage is not homogeneous
Contents are not developed in a "professional" way
