WikiUNE students club

Leaded by a teacher who received some talks from Wikimedia Mexico, a group of students of the University of Ecatepec started some activities related to the Mexican law in the Wikimedia projects. They uploaded the text about some Mexican laws and acts into Spanish Wikisource, they made up a course of Law of obligations in Wikiuniversity and wrote down some articles in Wikipedia about legal topics. They worked during the whole last semester and in February 2014 they invited WMMX board members and school authorities to attend a presentation about the club's achievements. This group is now known as "WikiUNE Club" and is asking for being recognized as an official club affiliated to Wikimedia México. Professor and lawyer Jorge Luis Esquivel Zubiri is now interested in creating a new club at another university where he is also a teacher.

Wiki Loves Monuments México 2013 exhibition

As we did last year, we organized the 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. The faculty's principal attended the event, as well as some of the winners of the contest and some 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 Mexico

Since last year we launched a pilot education program with some universities of Mexico where 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 exchange 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.

Monthly Wikipedia workshop

This year we started a new project which consists in a monthly Wikipedia workshop. The point is to have a regular activity in fixed dates and places to announce it as a permanent activity and allow people to attend, learn how to edit Wikipedia and know some Mexican Wikipedians. This workshop will be offered independently from the number of new people attending, considering it will be used also as a permanent meeting of volunteers for teaching each other their own experiences in Wikimedia projects.
