dc.description.abstract This paper reports on a study carried out in a northern Namibian urban school about the use of Wikipedia translation as an additional teaching and learning tool in Oshikwanyama Firs Language classroom. Higher-level learners (Secondary phase) were purposefully chosen for this study. The study followed a situated learning theoretical framework, of which its cognitive apprenticeship elements were used as the analytical tool. The research findings show that Wikipedia translation offers a simulating learning platform for learners to learn both languages Oshikwanyama and English reciprocally and this improves their performance. Furthermore, Wikipedia translation, which is done collaboratively, give learners confidence towards working with others to create knowledge. Lastly, Wikipedia translation motivates learners to learn Oshikwanyama and use it in their daily ICT interaction. en_US
