Free Software in Education

Tom Hoffman has an interesting post about free software being highlighted at NECC.

All of the projects he mentions are worth checking out if you are not familiar with them:
K12LTSP
SchoolTool
Cando
Edubuntu

A good listing of K-12 Open Source projects is the Edu Educational Application Index, maintained in conjunction with SchoolForge. If anyone is aware of a site like Freshmeat where you can sort these projects by language, maturity, etc. let me know. Because nothing is worse than finding a project that would meet your need exactly, only to find out it’s written in COBOL and in early alpha development.

    “Highlight” is a bit of an exaggeration. We didn’t do nearly enough this year to highlight free software. We’ll do better next year.
