Re: [school-discuss] FOSS survey

A small group of us in South Australia are toying with the idea of establishing a FOSS in Education action group. One of our first activities will probably need to be some intelligence gathering about

   * what people know about FOSS
   * attitudes to FOSS in schools
   * what FOSS people are already using in school

These things should be able to guide us in our next steps.

I am keen to get hold of survey tools that people have already developed that may help us with some or all of this.


I've recently completed a dissertation that relates to some of your concerns. Although I didn't survey a wide audience specifically about what FOSS they were using, much of that came out in the analysis. You can find the document here:

Also, I do have access to a good online survey tool. I'd be happy to work with others in getting a short survey out to identify some of these items that you list.
