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.

Monthly Wikipedia workshop[editar]

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.
