Free Software in Education News – October

Here’s what we collected in October. If you come accross anything that might be worth mentioning in this series, please drop me a note, dump it in this pad or drop it on the edu-eu mailinglist!

FSFE Edu-Team activities

  • We gained a new member from the Netherlands
  • I attended an OER barcamp in Cologne
  • Erik brought up the idea to create a map of FS municipalities which sparked my hopes to get something similar for edu institutions some day. (I opened a ticket for this to keep it in mind.
  • among other inquiries, we had one person asking for “scientific proof” (or anything going in that direction) that teaching with FS will not result in any disadvantages for the pupils when looking for jobs later. The answer we were able to provide wasn’t very satisfying to me. If you are aware of any studies that cover this subject, please contact us!

Other news

This paper (in German) suggests not just to teach how to code, rather to replace the subject “programming” with “digital exploration”. That subject shall deal with social, political and economical aspects of digitial developments.
