The meeting was held past March 2 in Buenos Aires.

Wikimedia Argentina is working on an Education Program, with different aims adjusted to learning levels: the work focuses on primary and secondary education, professional, academic and teaching training.

The first meeting to address this new initiative was held on Saturday, March 2, at the WM-AR headquarters in Buenos Aires. Fifteen people took part in the meeting, all involved in the Education field from different perspectives: academic faculty members, teachers and Wikipedia volunteers. They came from various cities, such as Buenos Aires, Córdoba and Rosario (in Argentina), and Montevideo (in Uruguay). During the meeting, the discussion took place around the different characteristics of an educational plan: main teaching aims differentiated by levels, key role identification in each one, and main actions to be developed.

After the congress, a mail list and a new wiki were created to continue collaborative work. WM-AR expects to organize a second meeting in the next few months to carry on activities and discussions.
