With apologies to those on the list who have already got this
information, I'd like to post this announcing that the website for the
Open Source in Education Conference 2003 is now up and running.
Here is some of the information from the site to fill you in on the
where and why.....
A National Conference to explore the use of Open Source software in UK
Primary and Secondary Education Institutions.
* to raise awareness of open source as an alternative solution
* to evaluate its suitability for use in schools and,
* to examine and learn from the implementation of open source in
Friday 4th April 2003 (9:25am - 4:30pm).
Danbury Park Conference Centre,
Main Road, Danbury, Essex
People from BECTA, the E-Envoy's office and Diana Laurillard (head of
E-Learning for DfES) will be there as well as quite a few from this list
who have already expressed an interest and put their name down - not to
mention Ian, Phil, Roger, Malcolm, Chris Dawkins and others who are
actually speaking during the day.
On the website you will find the booking form and other relevant
information, and please note places are limited.
I'm afraid the price has gone up a little since my preliminary
announcement (due to increased administration costs) to £79 + VAT.
Should you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact
me by phone on (01245) 226930 or off-list.
