Thank you all very much for the messages!

We hope this is a project that can serve as a small example of
collaboration between communities and all the work we can do together, as
well as a tool to support the development of current and future
communities.

We will continue to improve it during 2021!

Again, if anyone would like to implement it in their context and requires
any kind of support, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Thanks again!

[Wikimedia-l] Sharing a new project: community resources platform

2020-10-30 Thread Anna Torres
Dear all,

I am happy to share with you that during 2020 we have launched a new
Community Resources platform. This project is the outcome of the effort and
collaboration between affiliates and allied organizations from the
Wikimedia movement.

“Recursos Comunitarios” was created to facilitate access and cooperation
between current and future Wikimedia communities. Its main objective is
sharing information and resources that we have been developing from our
contexts. So far, it includes presentations, tutorials, and communication &
media content, mainly in Spanish and Euskera.


You can visit the platform at https://recursoscomunitarios.wikimedia.org.ar/

Looking forward to comments or opinions!

Best,

PS: If you would like to create a similar project and need any help, please
write us an email at proyec...@wikimedia.org.ar.

[Wikimedia-l] Welcome the new Board of Wikimedia Argentina!

2017-09-19 Thread Anna Torres
Dear all,

Last Saturday, September 16, the General Assembly of Wikimedia Argentina
took place. This was an election year and new authorities were chosen. The
new Board was define as follows:

 * President: Ivana Lysholm
* Vice-president: Galileo Vidoni
* Secretary: Mariano Pérez
* Deputy Secretary: Ivana Molena
* Treasurer: Nicolás Giorgetti
* Deputy Treasurer: Patricio Molina
* Board members: Esteban Zárate, Andrea Kleiman, Jorge Abreu
* Deputy Board members: Beatrice Murch, Leandro Kibisz

We especially want to congratulate Ivana Lysholm, who takes over her role
as President of the association.

We also want to thank the work of Galileo Vidoni during the last 5 years as
president. During his administration we have grown significantly as an
organization; we have tripled the number of activities and staff, and
fostered our reach and presence nationally and internationally.

We hope that you join in the congratulations and that more than ever, we
continue to build a solid, sustainable and diverse organization in
Argentina!


Hugs,

Re: [Wikimedia-l] A Massive Online Open Course about Wikipedia

2016-04-07 Thread Anna Torres
Hi Ziko,

We have done 2 MOOC with WMAR. So far, +2000 articles has been improved by
their participants.

We have published a digital publication of the experience. You can find it
here <http://wikimedia.org.ar/wikipuentes/>. Itt is also available in
english.

On the other side, we are preparing our 3rd online course in our own
e-learning platform, that would be available for the movement.

Hope it helps!

Hugs

[Wikimedia-l] The documentary film of Wikimedia Argentina now available. Happy birthday Wikipedia!

2016-01-15 Thread Anna Torres
Dear all,

Wikimedia Argentina has been working the last 6 months on a documentary
film based on the community, the editors and their work.

Some weeks ago I sent you the trailer and now, after the party for the 15th
anniversary has passed and the film has already been launched in Argentina,
we are pleased to be sharing with you the result.

Please, find it on the following links (all with subtitles in english)

Thank you so much!

We could add, that we all can learn how to improve and reach new editors
though your GLAM program and how to engage volunteers. You do a great job
on that and we are all learning :)

Thanks and great job!

 Hi,

 In Amical Wikimedia we have read with attention the reports of APG, the
 grants concedeed by the Wikimedia Foundation to the diferents chapters in
 order to run their activities. These comments by the WMF have
 recommendations for the other associations in order to learn from their
 errors and their success from the others and improving together. In this
 post we want to highlight those things that to us looked more positive from
 the advices and reflexions that we have analized.

 Hi everyone,

 Wikimédia France has recently issued its partnership policy :
 you can find it on Meta both in French [1] and in English [2].

 The objective of such a policy is to help communicate our vision of
 partnerships and share it with future partners and stakeholders. It
 includes our service offering (which is almost finalized) to clarify our
 scope of activity.

 If you have any questions/remarks or your own example of such a policy,
 please feel free to get in touch !

Great to hearing your experience. As being a new ED too (3 months now) I
can indentify myself with your experience: the first month is about
listening and getting to know :)

All the best for what is to come! Hope to meeting you asap!

  Your recommendations on areas you see as priorities for development

  I think this continues to be a huge pain point. Developer resources are
  scarce and expensive and there's often a feeling that the latest
 Wikimedia
  Foundation initiatives trump all other worthwhile projects. I think we
  need to find a better way to more fairly allocate resources.
 
  As a concrete example, there continue to be dozens of Wikimedia
 Foundation
  developers and other staff specifically focused on the English Wikipedia
  and sometimes Wikimedia Commons, while the other sister projects such as
  Wiktionary, Wikibooks, and Wikisource continue to receive almost no
 direct
  attention. (Over the past few years, even the term sister projects has
  become mildly insulting. These projects are more accurately the
 red-headed
  stepchild projects.) This won't happen quickly, but we must make it a
 goal
  to do better in this area.

 Congratulations to Wikimedia Mexico and Mexico City!

 I add my voice to that of Cooper concerning the criteria of choosing the
 winner for 2015. In addition to the cities that Cooper has mentioned, I
 would like to know what happened with Bali's bid too.

 Kind Regards,
 Aya Saif El-yazal Mahfouz

  Regardless, I hope when appropriate, the reasons Mexico City were chosen
  and where other bids could have done better will be posted somewhere for
  digestion as done in previous years. In particular, while the bid was
  clearly lacking, it would be helpful to have an official answer to why
 the
  Dar es Salaam was disqualified.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] New Evaluation Report: Wikipedia Education Program

2014-04-07 Thread Anna Torres
Dear Jamie,

Thanks for the report. As we are -WMAR- working on improving our
Educational Program we find it very useful. However, as Anne said it would
be great to know what it's exactly being reported in terms of programs in
order to find out which indicator is associated to each program.

Thank you!! Hope to hear from you asap.





2014-04-06 23:34 GMT-03:00 Risker risker...@gmail.com:

 Thanks for the links to the reports, Jaime.

 For the overall WEP report (as opposed to the also-linked WLM report) -
 could you please spell out on the Wiki page exactly what programs you are
 talking about, and link each to their specific report?  I'm having a hard
 time figuring out exactly what is being reported as part of the WEP, what
 projects are affected, and which programs have more participants.

 Thanks!

 Risker/Anne

  Greetings,
 
  (Please pardon any cross-posting)
 
  The final in our series of the Evaluation Reports (beta), the report on
 the
  Wikipedia Education Program, is now available on meta:
 
  https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Programs:Evaluation_portal/Library/WEP
  https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Programs:Evaluation_portal/Library/WLM
 
  Highlights of the report include:
 
  ==Inputs==
 
  The average Wikipedia Education Program reported cost a total of almost
  $8,000 USD in total, and $275 each week to implement. The average
 Wikipedia
  Education Program invests a total of $67 US and 3 hours into recruiting
  each new editor participant.
 
 
  ==Participation==
 
  Program leaders reported participation rates ranging from 25 to 2,372,
 and
  programs lasted from two weeks to 21 months with an average of 37.5
 weeks.
 
 
  ==Outputs==
 
  For the seven reported Wikipedia Education Program implementations,
 almost
  3,000 different Wikimedia pages were created or improved. The average
  Wikipedia Education Program produces about 120 pages of content each
 week.
  The average program participant adds just under half a page of content to
  Wikipedia and creates or improves six wiki pages each week.
 
 
  ==Outcomes==
 
  Out of the 3,334 new editor participants in Wikipedia Education Program,
 36
  (1.2%) participants were active three months after the program ended;
 33
  (1.1%) were active six months after the programs ended.
 
  Questions are welcome and encouraged on the talk page.
 
  On behalf of the Program Evaluation team,
 
  Jaime

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Announcing Anna Torres Adell as new Wikimedia Argentina ED

2014-02-22 Thread Anna Torres
Dear movement fellows,

Thank you so much for your warm welcoming!

As Galileo said and thanks to the support of the team and specially at this
very first stage, from March 1st onwards I will asume the ED of Wikimedia
Argentina Foundation.
To be part of Wikimedia Argentina Foundation means to me an excellent
professional challenge that I am prepare to assume and also  the perfect
place where to project - generating more and better results- all the years
of trainning and work experience acquired during my career.

During the last ten years I have worked in the field of human development
and international cooperation from all its aspects- attempting different
development sectors like social, economic, educational, sustainable and
cultural development among others- and so I considere the development as
the comprehensive management of all of these concepts which are nowadays
the key in order to ensure fairer societies.

With your support, our work together and a tool like Wikipedia, I'm sure
that Wikimedia Argentina Foudations aswell as the rest of the chapters
around the world, can set up a new framework to encorage the social,
economic and cultural change we would like to see in the nearly future. In
this connection, I hope not only, all of us, to create more inclusive
projects, but these projects to be the result and the impact each one of us
would like to build up!

Thanks you so much for the opportunity!

Anna Torres Adell

 Dear movement fellows,

 I'm pleased to announce that Wikimedia Argentina has a new Executive
 Director. Please welcome Anna Torres Adell to our movement!

 Anna was born in Barcelona but settled in Buenos Aires a couple of years
 ago. She is a licentiate in Political Science for the Universitat Pompeu
 Fabra and has post-graduate studies in International Cooperation;
 Management and Control of Public Policies; and Local Development and the
 Social Economy.

 She developed an interest on international cooperation and social matters
 since her teens, helping establish an educational NGO in Guatemala when she
 was just over 20. She has since lived and worked in Spain, México,
 Guatemala and Argentina. Before joining us at Wikimedia Argentina, Anna was
 the ED of PROEM Foundation, an organization aimed at coaching small
 businesses. Anna's track record also includes working with AECID, the
 Spanish agency for international cooperation, and the United Nations
 Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM).

 She has extensive knowledge and experience in the five dimensions that we
 cared the most when recruiting: commitment with the social goal of free
 knowledge, working with volunteers, administration, program management and
 funding.

 Selecting Anna was not easy, but not because we couldn't find the right
 person: We had just too much good EDs we wanted to hire! Thankfully we
 could choose from an important pool of candidates and proceed to evaluate
 thoroughly each one of them. We received over 100 applications, of which
 not less than half were pertinent. We gave all of them a score and made
 successive filtering stages before arriving to the eight people we
 interviewed in person over the last days.

 As you may have read on this list back in January, our decision to hire a
 new ED has to do with Osmar leaving us to return to his home country. Let
 me highlight that this good news could not have been possible without
 Osmar's work and commitment. Not only he helped designing the work
 description for his replacement, but he also participated in the recruiting
 and hiring process.

 We are extremely grateful to all what he has done to advance our mission in
 Wikimedia Argentina, and while we are certainly saddened to see him go we
 know that both he and us are doing everything possible to leave the
 organization on track and in good hands. Programmatic work will not suffer
 from this leadership change; if any, we as Board will ensure it gets
 reinforced.

 Anna will formally start working with us on March 1, and throughout all of
 that month Osmar will continue with us in Benedict fashion as ED emeritus
 to ensure that all the necessary knowledge, proceedings and contacts are
 transferred from one administration to another. We are glad to have
 achieved this level of stability as an organization, and we'd love to
 spread the word about this happy and smooth transition in the
 WikimediaConference with whoever wants to hear us :).

 We asked Osmar to be one of our representatives in Berlin as his last act
 of service, so it will also be a nice opportunity for you to meet him. In
 the meantime, please welcome Anna to the Wikimedia movement and to this
 mailing list!

 Best regards,

 *Galileo Vidoni*
 Presidente
 A. C. Wikimedia Argentina
