Embark on a journey with us as we unveil the transformative potential of Wikidata in curriculum alignment. Join our session to explore Wikidata for Education, a remarkable project born in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ghana, in collaboration with UNESCO's Global Education Coalition.

Discover how this initiative has aligned Wikipedia articles with school curricula, revolutionizing the way students access relevant information. Our session will unveil the journey of this project, the strategic steps taken to achieve curriculum alignment, and the exciting expansion to Uruguay and Italy.

Be captivated by the firsthand experiences shared, particularly the insightful adaptation of the project in Uruguay. We invite your active participation and aim to connect with GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums) stakeholders. Let's explore how GLAM data can be seamlessly linked or added to the existing model, opening up avenues for GLAM institutions to benefit from this project.
