CC Open Education Platform webinar: “Wikidata, OER, and Curriculum Alignment in Ghana, Uruguay and Italy”
March 5, 2024 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm GMT
Curious about Wikidata, OER, and curriculum alignment across national borders? Join the CC Open Education Platform for a Q&A discussion with guest speakers, Nat Hernández Clavijo and Sailesh Patnaik.
Nat and Sailesh will share the transformative potential of Wikidata in curriculum alignment through a review of Wikidata for Education, a project born in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ghana, in collaboration with UNESCO’s Global Education Coalition. The project aligned Wikipedia articles with school curricula, revolutionizing the way students access relevant information, and has since expanded to Uruguay and Italy.
