Lay Summary (Italienisch)

Lead
Con oltre 400 milioni di lettori, 280 versioni linguistiche e 30 milioni di articoli, Wikipedia è la più nota e consultata enciclopedia online, e il più potente strumento educativo disponibile su Internet, telefonia mobile e offline. Nonostante la sua centralità, Wikipedia non offre al momento una documentazione bilanciata da un punto di vista geografico, né le informazioni necessarie al completamento del ciclo di studi della scuola primaria nelle lingue usate dai diversi sistemi educativi. 
Lay summary

L'obiettivo del progetto di ricerca applicata Wikipedia Primary School - sviluppato all'interno di una collaborazione Svizzera-Sudafrica - è quello di contribuire alla qualità di Wikipedia e potenziare la sua capacità di essere uno strumento educativo. In modo più specifico, il progetto sperimenta una nuova metodologia che sostiene il lavoro dei volontari di Wikipedia con il coinvolgimento di riviste scientifiche, organizzazioni ed esperti. In collaborazione con persone e istituzioni il progetto crea e valuta un "Wikipedia Scientific Journal", un sistema per commissionare, vagliare e diffondere con licenza libera 100 articoli di Wikipedia rilevanti per il ciclo di studi della scuola primaria. 

Garantire l'educazione primaria universale è un obiettivo del Millennio ed è al centro dell'attenzione di numerose ricerche, iniziative e organizzazioni; molti studi negli ultimi decenni hanno analizzato il funzionamento di Wikipedia e il contributo delle comunità online al sapere. Il nostro lavoro vuole creare un ponte tra educazione primaria, sapere collaborativo e review scientifica, sperimentando e valutando il contributo che questa sinergia può produrre.

Abstract

"Wikipedia Primary School" is a project which allows students, families and teachers to find on Wikipedia the documentation necessary to obtain the primary school qualification in their country, in their language.Wikipedia is meant to be an educational tool and it is currently available online, via mobile phones and offline. Experiences have showed that, once accessible, Wikipedia does not provide information that responds directly to curriculum-based questions. The project relies on Wikipedia as an existing and growing resource, it solves the need of an encyclopaedia capable of responding to curriculum-based questions and, it fosters Wikipedia content, quality and outreach.Wikipedia Primary School contributes to universal primary education and to the Millennium Development Goals (MDG2: Achieve Universal Primary Education ). Even if it is scalable and international, the project is conceived primarily to address African countries and languages. The joint research project Wikipedia Primary School developed within a Swiss and South African collaboration specifically focuses on the theoretical frame of the project and in developing and evaluating a system to assess Wikipedia articles for primary education and to involve a wide network of scholars and contributors in their production. The project is an applied research involving a team lead by SUPSI University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland and the University of Cape Town, and benefitting from the partnership with Wikimedia Switzerland, and the Africa Centre based in Cape Town.
