Loves Monuments México 2013

As we did the last year, we organized an exhibition of the ten winner
photographs of Wiki Loves Monuments 2013 in Mexico. The images were printed
out in big format and the exhibition room was donated by our partners of
the Faculty of Philosophy and Literature of the National Autonomous
University of Mexico. In the inauguration attended the principal of
faculty, some winners of the contest and WMMX board members and volunteers.
The exhibition was there till March 15th, and in the next months it will
start a tour inside Mexico city and around other cities of this country.
Wikipedia Education Program in

Since last year we launcher a pilot education program with some
universities of Mexico in which we are teaching how to use Wikipedia in the
classroom, how to edit it and evaluation techniques. So far, we have
implemented this program in:

   - Facultad de Estudios Superiores Aragón de la UNAM.
   - Facultad de Filosofía y Letras de la UNAM.
   - Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, campus Iztapalapa.
   - Universidad de las Américas Puebla.

Now, we are on talks with Wikimedia Argentina to interchange experiences in
this field and create a sort of syllabus to standardize the contents and
teachings of this program. Besides we are introducing the use of the
education program extension to measure the successful of these efforts.
*Proyectos:Programa Educativo UDLAP >>
de Educación de Wikipedia >>

This year we started a new project which consist in a monthly Wikipedia
workshop. The point is to have a regular activity in fixed dates and place
to announce it permanent activity and allow people to attend, learn how to
edit Wikipedia and know some mexican wikipedists. This workshop will be
give independently of the number of new people that assist because it will
be used also as permanent meeting of volunteers for teaching each other
their own experiences in Wikimedia projects.
