What is the problem you're trying to solve?
The first step for fixing errors in the data of Wikidata is to find the errors.
What is your solution?
The first version of the extension LinkedWiki can print a simple table of Wikidata directly in any Mediawiki. The next step is to simplify the action to write a query in the mother tongue of users/students in the wiki of their schools or of Wikiversity. In the school, the students will be able to detect the errors and their teachers will be able to ask to fix these errors in Wikidata.
The first version of the extension can print a simple table in a Wiki page. The next step is to develop :
- a special page for building the SPARQL query in the mother tongue of students.(demo)
I'm testing the idea on private tools. Now, I need of time to transfer this idea in an extension for Mediawiki. Example of homeworks with my students (French) :
- Les fils de … : Les enfants exercent-ils la même profession que leurs parents ?
- Les footballeur ayant la nationalité française par ville de naissance et par poste / Les footballeur ayant la nationalité française par club et par poste
- Les villes jumelées dans le monde
Expand your idea
Would a grant from the Wikimedia Foundation help make your idea happen? You can expand this idea into a grant proposal.
Building and test this extension with real students.
12000 USD for 6 months with a senior developer and a young developer.
We can organize differents events in the universities "Wikidata for Science" where the students can create views of WIkidata very easily.
The extension is maintained since 2010 by my little company BorderCloud. Now I want to finish this extensions with Wikidata.
Measures of success
One goal is to create nice courses/homeworks of geography, economy, history, Web semantic, etc in Wikiversity with the data of Wikidata.
