REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
Vermont's premier Open Source and Education conference is returning
for a third year to the Lake More Resort in Fairlee, VT on Friday,
FOSSVT is a great venue to gather with other Open Source
practitioners, to learn about new Free Software opportunities and to
gain some hands on experience with FOSS solutions in the classroom.
We have some exciting presentations planned for this year:
This year's teacher track has something for everyone:
- K-5 Literacy Enhancement with Open Source
- Middle School - Music Madness with FOSS Tools
- High School - Teaching the democratic process with Scratch.
- Mike Vining will be showing how using MythTV can allow you to
broadcast major events (Inaugurations, Olympics) to the whole school.
- David Trask will present the Open 1 to 1 FOSS imaging solution for
netbook and laptop deployments.
For Leaders, Librarians and Life Outside the School Walls:
- Superintendent Daniel French will provide an SU-perspective on Open
Source and K-12.
- Jessamyn West will discuss solving town library problems with FOSS.
- Bethany Silva will talk about combatting the Digital Divide by
using Open Source options in an after school program.
