Re: [school-discuss] Do Something Dot Org

One thing on this site that jumped out at me that I think would really be appropriate for this list: Âgetting our list members to unite behind a common cause. ÂOn this list, we all seem to discuss ideas, send things we think might be of interest, etc., but we do not seem to be taking any compelling action steps. ÂIt seems if the entire population of this list got behind a good open source thing for schools and pushed together we could achieve some real change.

Maybe we could as a group nominate and agree upon 1-3 open source projects that have real potential for education, help publicize it, help marshal resources, contribute help ourselves and really make some progress with one of these projects. ÂWe should all think about where open source can help most and then move together as a group. Just an idea, but one I think has real merit. ÂThanks.
