Free Software in education: October – December 2010

Here’s a little summary again of what I found noteworthy in the field of Free Software in education in the last few months of this year in no particular order:

France

  • There has been an  UNESCO ICT-Competency Framework for teachers workshop in Paris.A little suspicious is, that Microsoft is engaged in the process. I couldn’t find anything bad in the documents so far, but I didn’t have the chance to review all the material in detail. Anybody else?

Germany

  • FSuB e.V. announced that they will meet to discuss their future activities on 22 Jan, 2011 in Essen. Everybody interested in the subject is invited to come.

Norway

  • FRISK in Norway hat their annual meeting. From what I could derive from an automated translation, they decided to work on a broader front and not just Skolelinux..Among other things, it was proposed to tackle all platforms with a DVD for Windows and Mac that will include Free Software as well as information about FRISK. They will also have a booth at GoOpen 2011 in March.

Spain

That’s already it; even for such a long time span. As always, I am 100 percent certain that I missed important news about Free Software in education. Please help me making the edu-postings more complete and let me know if you get aware of something!

Update: I just stumbled on this nice posting about the LinuxDay in Dornbirn, Austria.
