After the Linux In Education MiniConf at linux.conf.au this wiki was set up.
If you have anything to do with open source software and education please visit the wiki. There are a number of ways to be involved and also to let others know what you’re doing or what you’re involved with.
Monday and Tuesday this week my daughter and I attended the Connecting Up conference put on by CommunIT. I had put in a submission and was accepted to speak. I think it went very well. There were good responses to my presentation which was about Developing A Training Program Using F.O.S.S. (free and open source software). I’ll have some photos to post here soon.
Elizabeth Garbee’s talk on Extending Tuxracer was very good. She spoke very well and covered all aspects of her topic. I can’t wait to teach my kids how to make their own Tuxracer courses and I can use this knowledge in the classroom as well :-).
