About the presenter
Iván Alejandro Martínez is a historian at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (pending intern-ship), a journalist, wikipedist and podcaster.

Throughout the experience as professor, student and through investigation and compilation of data of various edication levels in schools of my community, concreatly in the teaching and learning of history, I present how a useful tool such as Wikipedia can be useful for students of middle high and high level, but implies a change in the dynamics of the educative methods for the academics due to the easy irrestricted access to information that is verted into the encyclopedia. That can turn into a negative result since there are no pedagogic resources that turn into learned content that information that is obtained from the internet. propose different ideas taken from the everyday experience that could enrich the valuable tool that is Wikipedia as much for teachers as for students, and enrich the educational labor through a) strategic restriction to information, b) formation of cinculating cometees with academic entities per country, and c) the certification of knowledge created by trustworthy users with work previous to, or experienced at the Wikipedia.
