December WikiSchool: What do we need Wikidata for?

What is Evening WikiSchool for seniors?
It is a series of regular, specialised workshops aimed mainly at seniors, especially graduates of the beginner (and advanced) Seniors Writing Wikipedia (SePW) courses.

What does the Evening WikiSchool offer?
It offers the opportunity to focus on developing the specific skills that a good Wikipedian needs to do their job. We will focus on techniques and tweaks that can be used in editing practice that are not covered in detail in the Seniors Write Wikipedia courses.

In December’s Wikischool, we will look at a separate project that links Wikipedia to other projects (Wikipedia Commons) and forms its invisible backbone – Wikidata. Wikidata are metadata items that provide “order” between entries (articles) in different language versions of Wikipedia around the world. They also serve as an identifier for Wikipedia users. The coordinator of the Prague Wikiclub, Wikipedian Jan Myšák, will tell us what Wikidata are for and how to work with them for ordinary users.

The online workshop – Evening Wikischool for Seniors. You can sign up here and find all the rest of the information and details there.

Don’t hesitate to register, as the workshop has limited capacity.
