New education leaflet planned

Current edu flyer

Current edu flyer

It started with a wiki page and the goal to create a short and concise list of reasons why schools should use Free Software. After some forging, we turned the content into an official FSFE leaflet that has been translated and is now available in nine l a n g u a g e s.

There was also a time where we created different versions of it aimed at different target groups like students and parents. Leaflets for other stakeholders were planned as well.

These leaflets are available as online and PDF versions for anyone to print out and use. The PDFs are generated by a script out of the xml files and parsed through LaTeX which makes it fairly easy to maintain these many translations and versions.

However, as we notice that our printed leaflets like the tools (PDF 10.5MB) or GnuPG (PDF 7.2MB) flyers are very well perceived, it’s been decided that an education flyer should be added to the list of things anyone can order from FSFE to spread the word.

How should this leaflet look like? For sure we’ll include our list of arguments we have already available in 9 languages. What else would be needed to convince people that Free Software is a good thing to teach? What image or graphics should be on the front to catch attention?

If you have any ideas or suggestions, please drop a note to the edu-team!

flattr this!
