This page shows the formatting of wiki workshops, focused on students in 5th. the 8th. grades of elementary school.

If you have any opinion about how to conduct this project or what should be taught about the Internet, the World Wide Web, the Social Networking or about the projects of the Wikimedia Foundation, you are on the right page, please share your opinions.

Getting started


The first concrete step was to present the project to elementary school cordination. Came to nothing. Please add subsections with new ideas.



Today (15/10/2009) we received a response from the school and proposed an initial meeting with the coordination.

Expected Results


All participants will create an account on wikipedia, have your Personal page and carry at least one valid issue in an article in wikipedia Lusophone.

Overall objective of learning


Explain what is Wikipedia and collaborate with their maintenance and development.

Specific Objectives

  • After participating in the workshop students will be able to mention what are the main projects of the Wikimedia Foundation and choose what arouses your curiosity.
  • Participants will be able to mention the main recommendations to publishers, and list the five pillars of Wikipedia.
  • Participants will become Wikipedia editors.

Program Content


Rationale name Workshop wikinINDI


Individual presentation: expectations (preparation for protagonization ).

  • Name of the speaker, volunteer Wikimedia Brazil, Brazilian Chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation.
  • Make recognition of the level of knowledge of Wikipedia.
  • Raise the main expectations of the participants, enhancing the overall objective of learning.

Wikipedia`s History

  1. Invention of the computer, PC, Windows, Internet and free software (Apache, Firefox, etc.), the attractiveness of the upload features.
  2. What is Web 2.0
  3. Social Networking (ORKUT, FACEBOOK, MYSPACE, ETC)
  4. Who is Ward Cunningham, creator of the wiki concept and who is Jimmy Wales, creator of the Wikimedia Foundation .
  5. What does the Wikimedia Foundation, what are your main projects: Wikipedia, Commons, Wikiquote, Wikitionary, Wikispecies, Wikisource and others

Structure of Wikipedia


The five pillars

  1. What Wikipedia is not;
  2. principle of impartiality - Neutral point of view;
  3. free content;
  4. rules of conduct;
  5. Wikipedia does not have fixed rules.

Three guidelines


The content of material for inclusion in Wikipedia is governed by the concept of 'verifiability' and not the concept oftruth.

Verifiable material in this context means that any reader should be able to assess that material has been published by a reliable source, that is, the Wikipedia can be included only content that is verifiable, that is, have reliable sources.

The principle of verifiability is one of the three content guidelines of Wikipedia.

The other two are:

  • The principle of impartiality, and
  • Principle of non-incorporation of original research.

Together, these policies determine the type and quality of material that is subject to publication in the main title.

Whereas these three guidelines are mutually complementary, they should not be interpreted in isolation and publishers should therefore familiarize themselves with all three.

The principles on which these three guidelines are based are not negotiable at the Lusophone Wikipedia and can not be changed by other recommendations, voting or consensus of the editors. Are negotiable only at the level of the Wikimedia Foundation.


The goal of Wikipedia is to create a source of information in encyclopedic format that is freely available.

The license that she uses gives free access to content in the same sense that free software is free, which means that Wikipedia content can be copied, modified and redistributed freely.

The only requirement is that the new version grants the same freedoms to others and acknowledges the authors of the Wikipedia article that was used (a direct link to the article satisfies our demands for credit to the authors).

Wikipedia articles therefore will remain free forever and can be used by anyone.

Images Policy

Decision Tree for loading images of derivative

Images and photographs, such as written materials, are subject to copyright.

Someone owns them unless they have explicitly beenput inpublic domain or released any other license previously known.

The images that are on wikipedia were directly licensed by the holder of copyright or someone able to license the work in its name.

To upload images on Wikipedia one must provide the following information: the 'description of the image the 'source (origin) and the license.

Important  :'source and license is the minimum information required. Images without them will be erased. See pictures policy

Blocking policy


The Wikipedia is a collaborative project in which all the constructive contributions are welcome. However, not all edits to Wikipedia in a constructive manner and in accordance with the policy established by the community. Thus, in cases where the Wikipedia content or the current standard might be jeopardized by a User (authenticated or not), chances are the blocked (temporary or permanent) that User , so that it is unable toeditin all areas of Wikipedia. This can be done only by administrators, according to the 'policy of blockadeof the Lusophone Wikipedia. Even locked, the User still canaccessthe content freely.

In any case, 'the dialogue must prevail over the lock'. When there is doubt about the blockade, must assume good faith and should be attempted before dialogue. Many users do not know that they are editing the wrong way, especially beginners. These users need to be guided, not blocked in the first instance.

Objectives of locks
  • In principle 'are not punitive except' in cases of consensual disciplinary decisions. Locksnotbe used as revenge.
  • 'Are preventive and guiding': they serve to curb negative issues, thus saving the unnecessary expense of surveillance in obvious cases. They also serve as time for reflection, as an example for the malicious, allowing stability to the project.
  • 'Do not serve to impose opinions or ideas': should not be intended to curtail exposure opinionated divergent rhetoric and debate.
  • 'Bills designed to prohibit any unlawful purpose,': abolish accounts created exclusively for not fulfilling policies already adopted. This is the case, for example: illegal puppets (POV, misrepresentation, polls, User already locked, to attack etc..) Spread word criminal explicit advertising or promotions of products, companies, institutions, NGOs, etc..
1. Possible reasons for blocking
1.1 Disrespect to current policies
1.2 attacks the integrity of the project
1.3 Misconduct
1.4 Abuse of public space
1.5 attacks the integrity of the accounts
  • 1.5.1 Violation account (invasion or theft).
  • 1.5.2 Signature forgery.
  • 1.5.3 Disclosure of personal data of the owner to others without proper authorization.
  • 1.5.4 Account Name improper (or blatantly offensive like the other User to enable point of confusion).
  • 1.5.5 Use of open proxies and anonymous proxies
1.6 are not reasons for blocking
  • 1.6.1 Exposure of opinions, ideas, suggestions, proposals (even if non-consensual) in appropriate locations, subject to rules of conduct.
  • 1.6.2 Acts that are not within the Wikipedia domain - for example, by posting defamatory information in your personal blog, provided that the User not make calls outside of their defamation within Wikipedia.
  • 1.6.3 No one can be blocked again, if this block is based on an action already sanctioned earlier.

User page


Wikipedia provides user pages to facilitate communication among participants in its project to build an encyclopedia. Generally, you should avoid substantial content on your user page that is unrelated to Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not a general hosting service, so your user page is not a personal website. Your user page is about you as a Wikipedian, and pages in your user space should be used as part of your efforts to contribute to the project. In addition, there is broad agreement that you may not include in your user space material that is likely to bring the project into disrepute.

What may I have on my user page?


To start with, you might include a userpage notice. The text "{{user page}}" will generate a tag which looks something like the one below. This is by no means a requirement but it can be helpful, especially for viewers new to Wikipedia who might be confused about what a personal page is doing on an encyclopedia. Predefinição:User page

Your userpage is for anything that is compatible with the Wikipedia project. It is a mistake to think of it as a homepage: Wikipedia is not a blog, webspace provider, or social networking site. Instead, think of it as a way of organizing the work that you are doing on the articles in Wikipedia, and also a way of helping other editors to understand those with whom they are working.

Some people add information about themselves as well, possibly including contact information (email, instant messaging, etc), a photograph, their real name, their location, information about their areas of expertise and interest, likes and dislikes, homepages, and so forth. (If you are concerned with privacy, you may not want to and are by no means required to emulate this. You should be aware that your user page may be duplicated by some of the websites that mirror Wikipedia.)

You can use your user page to help you to use Wikipedia more effectively: to list "to do" information, works in progress, reminders, useful links, and so forth. It is also good for experimenting with markup (that is, as a personal sandbox).

Another common use is to let people know about your activities on Wikipedia, and your opinions about Wikipedia. So you might include current plans, a journal of recent activities on Wikipedia, and your (constructive) opinions on how certain Wikipedia articles or policies should be changed. If you will not be editing Wikipedia for a while, drop a note on your user page to that effect.

You might want to add quotations that you like, or a picture, or some of your favorite Wikipedia articles or images (freely licensed only—see the What may I not have on my user page? section below), or the like.

Others may also edit your user page, for instance awarding you a barnstar or leaving other images for you. In the event that your editing privileges on Wikipedia are revoked, a notice of this may be placed on your user page.

If you want to dual-license your contributions under an additional license or declare them all public domain, you may put a notice to this effect on your user page. Because of the large templates and long category names, some editors move the license templates to a subpage (see the What about user subpages? section below). Whether you include an explicit license statement or not, however, all of your edits on Wikipedia are also licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License and the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

Many users include mentions of the languages they know (see Wikipedia:Babel).

You are welcome to include a link to your personal home page, although you should not surround it with any promotional language.

Note: User pages are often reached through user signatures on talk pages.

What about user subpages?


Predefinição:See If you need more pages, you can create subpages. More or less, you can have anything here that you might have on your user or user talk page.


  • A work in progress, until it is ready to be released. This is typically not necessary, though some people do this especially for WP:COI compliance or drafts of a page whose title is protected. See also: #Copies of other pages
  • Archives of user talk
  • Tests; for testing a template, make it a separate subpage.
  • Sections of your user page that are big enough to require their own page, e.g. a page of awards you have received or pictures you have taken.

What may I not have on my user page?

See also the policy section Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons#Non-article space.

Generally, you should avoid substantial content on your user page that is unrelated to Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not a general hosting service, so your user page is not a personal website. Your user page is about you as a Wikipedian, and pages in your user space should be used as part of your efforts to contribute to the project.

In addition, there is broad agreement that you may not include in your user space material that is likely to bring the project into disrepute, or which is likely to give widespread offense (e.g. pro-pedophilia advocacy) – whether serious or trolling, it's not what user pages are for. "Wikipedia is not a soapbox" is usually interpreted as applying to user space as well as the encyclopedia itself. You do have more latitude in user space than elsewhere, but don't be inconsiderate. Extremely offensive material may be removed on sight by any editor.

Examples of unrelated content include, but are in no way limited to:

  1. A weblog recording your non-Wikipedia activities
  2. Extensive discussion not related to Wikipedia
  3. Excessive personal information (more than a couple of pages) unrelated to Wikipedia
  4. Extensive personal opinions on matters unrelated to Wikipedia, wiki philosophy, collaboration, free content, the Creative Commons, etc.
  5. Personal information of other persons without their consent
  6. Advertising or promotion of a business, organization, or group unrelated to Wikipedia (such as purely commercial sites or referral links)
  7. Extensive self-promotional material that is unrelated to your activities as a Wikipedian
  8. Other non-encyclopedic related material
  9. Polemical statements unrelated to Wikipedia; in particular, statements attacking or vilifying groups of editors or persons are generally considered divisive and removed, and reintroducing them is often considered disruptive.
  10. Material that can be viewed as attacking other editors, including the recording of perceived flaws. The compilation of factual evidence (diffs) in user subpages, for purposes such as preparing for a dispute resolution process, is permitted provided the dispute resolution process is started in a timely manner. Users should not maintain in public view negative information on others without very good reason.
  11. Games, and other things pertaining to "entertainment" rather than "writing an encyclopedia", if they don't involve people who are constructive participants in the project. (cite as WP:UP#Games) (compare Category:Wikipedia games and Category:Wikipedia Word Association.)
  12. Communications with people uninvolved with the project or related work
  13. Images which you are not free to use (usually fair use images; see below)
  14. Categories and templates intended for other usage, in particular those for articles and guidelines
  15. User talk pages should not redirect unless the user is indefinitely blocked.

Again, these are examples. Please don't suggest others.

In general, if you have material that you do not wish others to edit, or that is otherwise inappropriate for Wikipedia, it should be placed on a personal web site. Many free and low-cost web hosting, email, and weblog services are widely available, and are a proper place for content unrelated to Wikipedia. For wiki-style community collaboration, you can download the MediaWiki software and install it on your own server if you want full control or use one of many online wiki farms.

The Wikipedia community is generally tolerant and offers fairly wide latitude in applying these guidelines to regular participants. Particularly, community-building activities that are not strictly "on topic" may be allowed, especially when initiated by committed Wikipedians with good edit histories. At their best, such activities help us to build the community, and this helps to build the encyclopedia. But at the same time, if user page activity becomes disruptive to the community or gets in the way of the task of building an encyclopedia, it must be modified to prevent disruption.

Do not put your userpage or subpages, including work-in-progress articles, into categories used by Wikipedia articles (example: Category:1990 births). Be careful of templates and stub notices that put a work-in-progress article into categories. You can "quote" categories by adding a colon before "Category", like this: [[:Category:Bridges]]. This turns it into an ordinary link. Templates and stub notices can be turned into links to themselves by putting tl| ("tl" followed by a pipe character) in front of their names, like this: {{tl|stub}} You can also "comment out" a portion of text by placing <!-- in front of it and --> after it; this makes the parser ignore that portion of the page.

Statements of violence

Statements that encourage, and/or condone, specifically, acts of violence against any person(s) or group(s) are not allowed on user pages. This only includes the mention, or implication, of specific violent acts – for example, murder or rape. It does not, however, include statements that support controversial groups or regimes, that some may interpret as an encouragement of violence.

Copies of other pages


While userpages and subpages can be used as a development ground for generating new content, this space is not intended to indefinitely archive your preferred version of disputed or previously deleted content or indefinitely archive permanent content that is meant to be part of the encyclopedia. In other words, Wikipedia is not a free web host. Private copies of pages that are being used solely for long-term archival purposes may be subject to deletion.

Similarly, pages kept in userspace should not be designed to functionally substitute for articles or Wikipedia space pages. If you find that your user subpage has become as useful as a normal article or project page, consider moving it into the appropriate namespace or merging it with other similar pages already existing there. One should never create links from a mainspace article to any userpage, nor should a userspace essay be used as the primary documentation for any Wikipedia policy, guideline, practice, or concept.

Images on user pages

Do not include non-free images (copyrighted images lacking a free content license) on your user page or on any subpage thereof (this is official policy and the usual wide user page latitude does not apply, see Wikipedia:Non-free content criteria for details). Non-free images found on a user page (including user talk pages) will be removed (preferably by replacing it with a link to the image) from that page without warning (and, if not used in a Wikipedia article, deleted entirely).
There is broad consensus that you should not have any image on your userpage that would bring the project into disrepute (per Jimbo Wales), and you may be asked to remove such images.

Simulated MediaWiki interfaces

The Wikipedia community generally frowns upon simulating the MediaWiki interface, and it should be avoided except when necessary for testing purposes.

Ownership and editing of pages in the user space



As a tradition, Wikipedia offers wide latitude to users to manage their user space as they see fit. However, pages in user space still do belong to the community:

  • Contributions must be co-licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License and GNU Free documentation license, just as articles are.
  • Other users and bots may edit pages in your user space, though by convention your user page will usually not be edited by others.
  • Community policies, including Wikipedia:No personal attacks, apply to your user space, just as they do elsewhere. Article content policies such as WP:Original Research generally do not, though would apply should the material be moved into the namespace.
  • In some cases, material that does not somehow further the goals of the project may be removed (see below), as might edits from banned users.

In general, it is considered polite to avoid substantially editing another's user page without their permission. Some users are fine with their user pages being edited, and may even have a note to that effect. Other users may object and ask you not to edit their user pages, and it is probably sensible to respect their requests. The best option is to draw their attention to the matter on their talk page and let them edit their user page themselves if they agree on a need to do so. In some cases a more experienced editor may make a non-trivial edit to your user page, in which case that editor should leave a note on your talk page explaining why this was done. This should not be done for trivial reasons.

Removal of comments, warnings
See also: Wikipedia:Don't restore removed comments

Policy does not prohibit users, including both registered and anonymous users, from removing comments from their own talk pages, although archiving is preferred. The removal of a warning is taken as evidence that the warning has been read by the user. Deleted warnings can still be found in the page history. Repeatedly restoring warnings does nothing but antagonize users, and can encourage further disruption; removal of template warnings is rarely an urgent or important matter, and it is often best to simply let the matter rest if other disruption stops.

Important exceptions include declined unblock requests and confirmed sockpuppetry notices (while blocks are still in effect), as well as miscellany for deletion tags (while the discussion is in progress) or, for anonymous editors, shared IP header templates. These notices and templates are necessary in order to keep a user from gaming the system. Such templates are intended not only to communicate with the user in question, but to share important information about e.g. blocks and sockpuppetry with other users.

Users should note that restoring talk page warnings is not a listed exception to the three-revert rule.

Use of page protection for user pages

As with article pages, user pages are occasionally the targets of vandalism, or, more rarely, edit wars. When edit wars or vandalism persist, the affected page should be protected from editing.

Most user page vandalism occurs in retaliation for a contributor's efforts to deal with vandalism. Administrators may protect their own user pages when appropriate, and are permitted to edit protected pages in user space. Sometimes a non-administrator's user page may be the target of vandalism. Such pages should be listed at Wikipedia:Requests for page protection and may then be protected by an administrator.

Note that repeatedly inserting copyrighted content on your own user page after being notified that doing so violates our policy is also considered disruptive, and may result in it being protected.

Vandalism of talk pages is less common. Usually such vandalism should merely be reverted. Blocks should be used for repeated vandalism of talk pages, where policy permits. In rare cases, protection may be used but is considered a last resort given the importance of talk page discussions to the project.

Removal of inappropriate content

If the community lets you know that they would rather you delete some content from your user space, you should consider doing so – such content is only permitted with the consent of the community. Alternatively, you could move the content to another site, and link to it.

If you do not cooperate, inappropriate content will eventually be removed, either by editing the page (if only part of it is inappropriate), or by redirecting it to your main user page (if it is entirely inappropriate).

In extreme cases, your user subpage may be deleted, following a listing on Miscellany for deletion, subject to deletion policy.
