A message to all members of K-12 Open Source Community
OK, here are two great opportunities around Open Source Software for K-12
that are coming up SOON!
1. The K-12 Open Minds Conference in Indiana, which had an uncertain future
after changes in the Indiana Department of Ed, is BACK ON! Not only is it
on, but the format is changing in some really GREAT ways.
First, the conference is now free. Really, free. No registration fee. :)
Second, Michigan City Area Schools are hosting the event (significantly
contributing to the "fre part!). So join us on October 6th and 7th, 2009 in
Michigan City (Indiana) for the third annual K-12 Open Minds Conference
about Open Source in K-12 Education.
Third, the conference will now include both formal sessions and informal
sessions--including conversations and gatherings around topics of interest
in various areas of Open Source. So come to learn and/or present, and to
share experiences and projects related to open technologies on a variety of
topics such as teaching and learning, leadership, and technical issues.
Conference Website: http://k12openminds.org to register (presenters still
wanted and very much encouraged!)
2. For the fourth year in a row, the 2010 Computer Using Educators (CUE)
annual conference will have an Open Source Pavilion and formal speaker
series. Yeah for CUE!
AND there is only 1 week left to submit a proposal to speak at CUE. We need
great speaker proposals on Open Source in K-12 at this conference, so please
consider submitting to present! Please submit online by next Friday,
September 11th, at: http://www.cue.org/conference/present.
