Allan Shand Posted about 2 years ago Open Source + Education = A Brighter Future I couldn't agree with you more. Right now we have a battle/war for information with closed source and copyright/patent and opensource copyleft (gpl/creative commons) heading up against each other. The closed source side have the upper hand because they can influence goverment policy however communication is a natural act for humans and trying to control how that happens will fail sooner or later. My personal vision of what I would like to see is a combination of Sugitra Mitras | http://www.ted.com/talks/sugata_mitra_the_child_driven_education.html | method Using Raspberry Pi's (opensource computer) which cost $25 | http://www.raspberrypi.org/ | Using opensource and free operating systems such as Fedora or arch Linux to access free education materials online give the childern a goal and sit back and watch the magic (education) happen. Basically the Idea is to remove as many barriers as possible to education all the way to the highest level.
