#WikiLovesMonuments: how to promote knowledge of digital cultural heritage at school through the active participation of students in Wikipedia and other free knowledge projects.

Is it possible to educate on cultural and artistic heritage and on landscape through active participation in Wikipedia, the largest free online encyclopedia, and other projects in the Wikimedia galaxy? Of course yes! By participating in this presentation, the teachers will learn to work collaboratively with students to create new cultural contents (encyclopedic entries, photographs, tour guides, multimedia products) that will enrich the largest open archives of free digital resources (Wikipedia, Commons, Wikivoyage).
