What is an ambassador for WikiEducator?country.
Ambassadors for WikiEducator assist in the realisation of our strategy by promoting activities which:
- help build the WikiEducator community,
- develop skills and build capacity for all WikiEducators,
- promote and advocate free educational content, and
- identify and implement innovation in WikiEducator.
Ambassadors are people who have a passion to widen access to quality education through open networks and free content. They identify themselves in the WikiEducator community and keep us informed of their ambassadorial activities.
