Now, this looks interesting! Heather Ross will be facilitating the next SCoPE seminar, The Use of Open Source and Free Software in Education, beginning on November 6 and running through November 26.
Description: The amount of open-source and other free applications continues to grow even as school budgets continue to shrink. Come join us in a seminar on the educational uses of these applications. The discussion will include references to what is available, the benefits of using these applications and the impediments to making us of them in educational settings.
