[school-discuss] Looking for an international lecturer on free software in schools


My name is German Bustos, I'm contractor for Computadores para Educar, a Colombian government program which has brought computers for thousands of Colombian public schools since 2001, this program offers also teacher’s training in the use of computers in classes. All these computers are running MS Windows, but there is a growing interest in free software. Packages like OpenOffice.org and Mozilla are been tested to be used on those machines.

A national meeting of teachers using computers will take place at June 28th, 29th and 30th in Bogotá, it is expected that at least 500 teachers from all the country would participate y that meeting.

We are looking for an international lecturer who can teach Colombian educators how to use free software in their classes and schools, what are the advantages of this kind of software specifically for education. We have special interest in the use of computer technologies in teaching subjects like math, language and science.

We are also contacting national groups that promote free software to participate in the meeting.

Can you please help me to find such a lecturer?

Thanks a lot,
