Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

English: This BoF is dedicated to the many teachers out there (numerous editors on different language versions) who use Wikipedia in their classrooms. The BoF discussions will be held in an open and friendly environment where teachers can share their experiences. No matter how small or how large your project was, it can always be adapted to fit other sister projects, and inspire other teachers. Education is the future of the Wikimedia movement!
