What is “the Curriculum”?

-

from a Swedish point of view

6

1
Basic Metadata Markup (RDF/XML)

1
Machine readable content and partly
machine
processable
*.

2
Detailed Metadata Markup (RDF/XML)

1
Making the content machine
processable

at
a detailed level (i.e. Objectives, central
content and concepts, and knowledge
criteria).

3
Web
-
friendly API:s (REST)

1
Content/service accessible for other Web
Services to be included into ”mashups”.

4
Tools for annotating curriculum and
syllabus

1
Annotate and add metadata to national and
local steering documents (e.g. for teachers,
subject experts, publishers).

Main objective(s) of the WILD
-
project


Make the school curriculum digitally useful


Machine
-
readable

and
machine
-
processable

by the use of Semantic
Web
technologies


Hence: meaning
for
humans

(i.e. students and teachers) as well as for
machines

(i.e. software and services)
.


Making
the curriculum/steering Documents

usable


by wiring
other
digital services to the curriculum
.



Make
the curriculum a part of schools

information ecology



Teachers should be able to actually
use the steering
documents

when teaching by connecting pedagogical
activities and resources to the steering documents.


Provide tools
to analyze
visualize the curriculum (for
students, parents etc.)

We want others
to


create added value

by


integrating and using

our Curriculum
Service
in


new digital (mashed

services
for schools!

Deliverables


Digitized Steering/Curriculum Documents.

Preferably in
a standardized data format. We are exploring the
Curriculum
Exchange Format, CEF

as the basis (but this is still a fairly
open issue...)


Semantic Web technology: An RDF
-
binding to CEF for machine Processable
Semantics
*
.


A
methodology
*

for analyzing and adding metadata and
annotations to the Curriculum.


Tools
*

for markup and annotation (for contributing to the
metadata ecology).


A basic structural and descriptive markup
*

of the
curriculum documents. For others to use and improve.


A set of API:s

for interacting with the curriculum service.
I.e. an interface for other services to use.


A couple of
example services

that builds upon those API:s
and the curriculum service.

Currently

ongoing work
