Open Source - a Big Hit in the Classroom

Introducing open source software to those who will teach future generations of computer programmers was a major theme at the ICT in Education Conference held in Cape Town last week.

DireqLearn, theShuttleworth Foundation and Hewlett Packard (HP) were the three major exhibitors at the conference, which was attended by about 600 educators from across SA.

The conference was organized by the Western Cape School's Network, a non-government organization originally set up to supply local learners with an e-mail address.
