This evening, David Thornburg, Steve Hargadon, and Miguel Guhlin got together for a skypecast on open source technologies in education. This was the first in a new series on this topic– What a treat to be able to listen in as great minds consider what WILL be a large part of the future in our schools: open source technologies! Check it out!
David has recently published “When the Best is Free: An Educator’s Perspective on Open Source,” available from The Thornburg Center. David generously gave me permission in February 2006 at TCEA to share his presentation “March of the Penguins – Linux on the Student Desktop!” as a podcast, which you may also want to listen to also if you’re interested in these issues.
The Thornburg Center also has a new website of podcasts that feature open source technology issues as well.
Many thanks to Steve, Miguel, and David for the first of what promises to be a GREAT series on open source technologies in education!
