Schema.org for Education

You can add tags to HTML pages (and JSON-LD documents) that search engines can index.

Schema.org is an RDFS vocabulary with classes and properties; for example: AlignmentObject and educationalAlignment.

When you dereference a schema.org URI with a web browser, there is a corresponding web page describing the term and, in many cases, listing examples of how to use the markup in Microdata, RDFa, and JSON-LD:

Search engines index all three formats.


While the schema.org vocabulary pages are available over HTTPS, when you reference a schema.org class, you reference the HTTP link.

Many of the schema.org education terms came from the LRMI project.


LRMI (Learning Resource Metadata Initiative) is a project with the stated goal of “establish[ing] a common vocabulary for describing learning resources.”

I never let schooling interfere with my education.

—Mark Twain

—Noam Chomsky

Clean Language

  • Symbolic Modeling:

    • We think in metaphors – it’s apparent in our language.

    • A person’s understanding of the world is rooted in their symbolic landscape.

    • Different learners have different metaphorical conceptions.

  • Clean language:

    • MAPS: Metaphors, Assumptions, Paradigms, or Sensations

    • Different ways of saying the same thing:

      • As teachers / coaches / counselors, we can be most effective by recognizing others’ symbolic metaphors and working from there.

      • As teachers, our job is not to impose our metaphors on others.

    • Clean Language offers a few standard question forms (“clean questions”) for maximizing growth in understanding.
