The Use of Open Source and Free Software in Education
Facilitator
Heather RossHeather Ross
Description: The amount of open-source and other free applications continues to grow even as school budgets continue to shrink. Join us in a seminar on the educational uses of these applications. The discussion will include references to what is available, the benefits of using these applications, and the impediments to making us of them in educational settings.


The Innovate October/November issue and November Webcasts feature the latest thinking and research in open source technology. Visit the Innovate site for full details.


Also, be sure to contribute to the Open Source and Free Software in Education Wiki.
