Open Source - Open Education - Open Minds
Learning is fun. Yes, it is. When you can look at the sources and can modify them, then your learning becomes what you want. Add motivation and willingness to challenge yourself, then learning is the stuff of success. Don't let bumps along the way make you quit.
"Failure" is overrated. It isn't a terminal state.
Hour of Code
H is for Happiness
The week of December 9 - 15 is Computer Science Edweek and The Computer Science Teachers' Association is one of many organizations promoting an hour of code in every school everywhere. But you know, you don't have to be in school to do it.
Will you participate?
I am an advocate for F/LOSS. Free/Libre Open Source Software is the key to personal and organizational success. If you call it FOSS, I won't mind. You enjoy the freedom to use Free Software for any purpose, examine the code, modify the code and redistribute. Get involved, Hey?
What do you think?
The Massachusetts Computer Using Educators, Inc. (MassCUE has a group of special interest groups (SIGs). Several of them are physically located. Some are virtual gatherings. You are welcome to participate whether or not you are a MassCUE member (which is, of course, encouraged). I'm the organizer of the SIG promoting the use of Free Open Source Software in schools.

Open Respect was formed to provide a common place in which we can remind ourselves that irrespective of our views on openness and freedom, respect should be at the foundation of how we communicate.
