Re: [school-discuss] Do Something Dot Org

Greetings Casey,

Just writing to register my support for the idea of Schoolforge undertaking a larger endeavour.  I have a django-based web education co-op project I've been re-prototyping for several years that I believe would fit nicely with Schoolforge.  It would provide self-paced, paid work for opensource education software developers on this list AND be totally compatible with FOSS principles.  If there's any interest out there then we should communicate.  But yes, Casey, I also agree that Schoolforge could be a nice parent organization for something. 

Best Regards,
Charles Cossé

One thing on this site that jumped out at me that I think would really be appropriate for this list:  getting our list members to unite behind a common cause.  On 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.  It 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.  We 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.  Thanks.

I don't know how many of you are familiar with this:


I think it should be possible to make some FLOSS projects
that would work well with Do-Something's approach....
