I think this is a bit heavy for our target audience - although I have to say,
on first reading I'm unsure what the goals of openslate actually are.

We're looking at approaching the subject based on introducing web apps first;
show educators what powerful OSS applications exist. Part of the training would
be to promote OSS ideas and resources; but that would be secondary because
expousing ideologies often turns people away.
