Free Software in Education – Clearing the backlog

Some 16 months ago, I intended to sum up the news I got aware of in regards to Free Software in Education on a regular basis. I still think that this is a good idea, but I guess I should shorten the time span between the postings. I figured, it’s quite a lot to catch up with if you wait  too long ;)
