Jim Hutchinson has created the Education Enthusiasts Team in Launchpad to gather support for extending Open Source Lesson Plans and the educational applications of Open Source. Jim’s been leading the Colorado LoCo’s educational effort for several months now and is very motivated. If you have an interest in this topic, I encourage you to join the team and introduce your self to Jim.

Education Enthusiasts

The purpose of this team is to build a community of teachers, educational technologists, and anyone else interested in the educational applications of open source technology. To be successful in this, we need people of all talents – from those who can develop and improve software packages to those who can create and implement teaching plans and activities.

Our first project is to develop a collection of lessons designed around using open source software in the classroom. Please visit https://wiki.edubuntu.org/Lessons to learn more or add content.

We are open to other ideas as well. Please share any you have.

This is an open team; any user can join and no approval is required.
