[school-discuss] ISO Award suggestions and Software Freedom Season
As we review projects for inclusion on the educational CD-ROM (the ISO
project), here's an idea: let's give out some awards. Awards might include:
Astronomy, Best Molecule Viewer
Administration, Best K-12 Web-based utility
Pedagogy, Best use of learning theory in a tool
Of course, these would be limited to free/open source. Suggest giving
the award a name (something more encompassing than penguins, tux, etc):
Golden Apple Award (overused)
Golden Chalk Award (has been used a couple of times)
Golden Bit Award (also used a couple of times)
Golden Forge Award (not used; not a bad name)
Golden Nibble Award (not used, but an esoteric computer term, but cute)
or could give a rating, like a 4 Star:
4 Bit (1111 wouldn't want to get just 2 Bits out of 4 :)
And we could announce the award winners on the Software Freedom Season
kickoff day, one month from now.
I'd be willing to help with handling nominations and voting. Anyone
second the motion?
