Welcome to Wikidata, BlaueBlüte!
Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!
Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:
- Introduction – An introduction to the project.
- Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
- Community portal – The portal for community members.
- User options – including the 'Babel' extension, to set your language preferences.
- Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
- Project chat – Discussions about the project.
- Tools – A collection of user-developed tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.
Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask on Project chat. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.
I noticed you manually merged an item, which is ok, but it is best to either use the Merge special page, or enable the Merge gadget (I personally find the gadget easier). You can find the gadget in your preferences, it's the first under "Wikidata-centric". After it'a enabled, it can be found in the "More" menu. This ensures that all data is successfully transferred, and it will also redirect the newer item to the older item, per this discussion. If you have any questions or queries, please drop me a message ;) --George (Talk · Contribs · CentralAuth · Log) 07:22, 8 March 2015 (UTC)
Export the results
Hi, BlaueBlüte. Do you know how to display the result of the query (a single word) on a wiki page? Could you build a little demonstration module/template here (or anywhere elsewhere)? --TadejM (talk) 11:02, 15 March 2023 (UTC)
- On the other hand, you could perhaps use  (or something along this line) to further upgrade your module. TadejM (talk) 13:44, 15 March 2023 (UTC)
Wikidata for Education Project
I trust you are doing well. We appreciate your time in commenting on our property proposals, it is helping shape the model best.
This Wikidata for Education is a pilot project with a prime focus on Ghana’s education curriculum. We are working with UNESCO on this and we are looking at leveraging on Wikidata to show how curriculum data can be visualized in a more agile format through queries and also show how different countries curriculum data relates with one another but with different naming conventions, also to align the Wikimedia ecosystem with school curricula. That will help students and teachers to find necessary reading materials and resources through Wikipedia.
We are not trying to invent a new Wikibase instance for this project because we have most of the properties we need to digitize these curricula already on Wikidata except a few which we have requested to help show the relationship between and among different curricula in different countries and also help educators and students find the relevant curriculum content from different language Wikipedia. For example, a teacher or a student in Ghana can find content on a particular curriculum like Social Studies Curriculum for Basic 7 in the English Wikipedia (13 articles), French Wikipedia(11 articles) and Dagbani Wikipedia (1 article). This doesn’t only provide knowledge to the reader but also points out the knowledge gap in different Wikipedia that could better help make educational content readily available.
See a general knowledge graph query here.
The goal is to use the current property proposals:
ISCED Attainment; ISCED attainment refers to the level of education completed by an individual according to the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED) framework. ISCED is a widely recognized framework used to classify educational programmes and their corresponding attainment levels.
ISCED Category Orientation;ISCED Category Orientation refers to the broad field of study or specialization of an educational programme, as classified by the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED) framework. ISCED Category Orientation provides a way of grouping educational programmes into broad, narrow and detailed categories, based on the subject matter and focus of the programme.
Competency;According to the Ghana Education Curriculum Framework developed by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA), competency refers to the ability of learners to apply knowledge, skills, and attitudes to solve problems and complete tasks in different contexts.
ISCED field; ISCED field refers to the more specific subject area or discipline of an educational programme, as classified by the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED) framework. ISCED field provides a more detailed classification system within the broader ISCED Category Orientation, allowing for more specific comparisons of educational programmes.

This to help show the differences and similarities in curricula materials for different countries.We acknowledge that the proposals have received varied comments and views. Specifically, we would like your feedback on the possibilities of the changes that could make the properties look better. I understand that you are on a very tight schedule, but I believe that your expertise and insights would be invaluable in this process. I would be more than happy to discuss the proposals further with you at your most convenient time soon.
Thank you for your help and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
