Hello fellow Europeans in the #Fediverse:
Are you aware of any educational institutions already using FS?
Do you know about any other #education related activities in your country?
You could have a look at the Open Science Barcamp & Open Science fair for information/hints.
Does the software carpentry quality? http://software-carpentry.org
Not just Europe. https://wpcampus.org
https://www.campussource.de when it comes to administrative software for universities.
@guido I've heard of both the French public service and an education department in Germany deploying chat systems based on the matrix protocol.
Since it's an open protocol, I'm not 100% sure they're using liberating software to implement these, but it seems likely.
@guido There's also the recent news about a Munich local government shifting back to a GNU-based OS:
@guido great question, I do this for little NGo's, associations, entrepreneurs but I don't know of any established organization working this at the level of public administration etc..
I can ask around for sure !
Hello! Basques are trying to organize, promoting use of FS in education and also demanding institutions to do things propperly (not just use the "easy" Windows and the cheap or "free" Google services). It's not in English, but you could send an email and ask for information I guess https://hezkuntza.librezale.eus/kontaktatu/
If you are looking for institutions that promote FS, instead of people movements, this is a list of Linux "distributions" (most of them are just Ubuntu remasterizations) prepared especially for education:
Luberri (Euskadi / EH)
MAX linux (Madrid)
Molinix (C. La Mancha)
Vitalinux EDU (Aragón)
Half of them might be abandoned. I just know Luberri, which is pretty cool and should be being used in every Basque school... but it's not... yet 😊 https://alexgabi.blogspot.com/p/blog-page.html?m=1
