WikiSkills Handbook

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

This handbook is meant to be a practical guide to help educators of all type (teachers, trainers) bring their public in using wikis and wiki-like tools for their learning activities, through the use of customized wiki-based learning scenarios, for their socio-professional development.

The handbook has been developed in the context of the WikiSkills European project, which aims to apply the benefits of wikis to promote educational lifelong learning opportunities. It has been further refined during the Wikinomics Project, meant to improve, reuse and disseminate Wikiskills results, with a focus on the area of economy and employment.
