EduWiki Live is a live, virtual meeting that is dedicated to facilitating conversations between Education Sector leaders and our Wikimedia community and supporting "real-time" conversations about the community’s questions.

Theme of the month: Wikidata + Curriculum Digitization

Here is the brief agenda to the event
  • A general update and news on things happening in the EduWiki community. An overview of the potential impact of aligning curriculum data on Wikidata, and where we are now with the Wikidata for Education project by Nichole Saad.
  • Take a deep dive into the data models for curriculum standards with Ivan Savov: learn about the use cases for digital curriculum standards, the work done so far, and how this could be useful for the Wikimedia movement.
  • Meet our implementing partners from Ghana, learn what we want to accomplish with the Wikidata for Education project, and why it is important in the Ghanian context.

  • We provide safe spaces for the growth of our community, learn about actors in the education sector, why Wikimedia matters to them, and how to work with them towards the movement strategy goals.
  • We believe in knowledge sharing, we learn from each other and support each other to grow and overcome barriers.
  • We develop trust, you can learn more about the education team’s work, understand how your work aligns with the global education goals.


EduWiki Live will be organised once a quarter. We will advertise the event on our communication channels. The mode of participation will be Zoom. We aim to provide language interpretation for these events depending on the request of the audience.


How is it different from the Office Hours?

EduWiki Live is a successor to Office Hours. EduWiki Live will focus more on bringing together the Wikimedia Community with Education Sector actors, in order to learn and share perspectives. The format will also allow for more participation and engagement in multiple languages.

Who can join the event?

It is open for everyone to participate! This event isn’t just for seasoned community members or affiliates. Anyone who has an open mind to listen, share, and learn from others can be a part of this event.

How is it different from the Open Education meeting by the Wikipedia Education UG?

This meeting aims to serve as a bridge between our community and the education sector. Join this meeting if you want to engage in deep dives into interesting topics about global education from a Wikimedia movement perspective!

I know of someone from my region who could be a good speaker for this event. How could I suggest their name?

We encourage you to nominate champions from your region or community to speak during these events. You can write to spatnaik[at]wikimedia[dot]org for the nominations.
