Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)
Wikiexpedition is a sociotechnical information made from photographs and their description of certain strategic areas of the surroundings of Mexico City. Students have documented and uploaded photos, more than 5 thousand to inform about the diversity of cultural communities from Mexico. We are using the instruments of a sociotechnical kind of research in which students investigate, take pictures and document as if they were a procedure that is going to be there to share it at Wikipedia. Since we started with this kind of researching we found that only in the area of Xochimilco, students could experiment, take pictures and document two areas that are not even detected in official books yet. During the presentation, just some of these examples are going to be exposed.:
