I will present my experience with teaching the teachers of secondary schools about Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects and issues (wiki-technology, wikimedia movement, copyright, free knowledge, encyclopedic writing, neutral point of view, etc.). How to attract their attention, how to spin off the power of other entities. Few simple actions every teacher should know about wikipedia. I have presented many times at faculties and schools and I'm co-author of printed Wikipedia textbook in Macedonian and Albanian.
