@erik_lonroth has agreed to open the roaster with a webinar on Open Source Software.
1. Webinar “Let’s Open Up!”: 28th of January, (Tuesday 18:00 to 19:00 CET)
2. Webinar “Knowing the Problem”: 11th of February, (Tuesday 18:00 to 19:00 CET)
3. Webinar “Working together!”: 25th of February, (Tuesday 18:00 to 19:00 CET)
1. Let’s Open Up!
Learn about how to use and support opensource!
One of the learning from @erik_lonroth 's workshop on teaching teachers open source was that "‘Not even software developers’ seems aware of the fundamentals of open source and the four freedoms. ".
After working with and researching Open Source Software for years, he wants to share his learnings and tips with us and work on figuring out how to further the FOSS environment.
For this session - the short agenda is as:
- Welcome everyone and short introductions.
- A presentation of the outcome from the “Teaching teachers open-source workshop”.
- Plan next IRL meeting (topic, venue, event marketing).
Everyone welcome to participate that wants to help build an edgeryders community on open source.
2. Webinar “Knowing the Problem”:
The first Meeting offered a very interesting discussion with some great FOSS activists with firm tech backgrounds. During the last week, @Emile and @felix.wolfsteller have explored the situation of It and opensource education in their regions (see posts below). DIscussing those findings and the connected questions such as "Do they (the “end users” (Teachers, students, etc. ) know there is a problem?"
WE will try to invite some experts from the teaching background and discuss further the direction and form off an approach to further Opensource in teaching.
@Emile, maybe you could also talk a bit about sustainability for Open source projects? how to make opensource projects sustainable @Emile, would be great to have you there!
3. Webinar “Working together!”
In the third discussion, we want to sketch out a concrete plan for further collaboration via an intensive full-day workshop and whom to invite to that event.
@erik_lonroth, looking forward to see this project and your workshops grow!
