What would happen if schools were powered by free and open source software? What if students were trusted and given the freedom to explore and experiment with their school-issued devices?
The results may surprise you.
Free and open source software has fueled Penn Manor School District’s classrooms for over a decade. The strategy culminated in a high school 1:1 learning program, where students received 1700 school-supplied laptops exclusively loaded with Linux and open source software.
Charlie will tell the unusual story of how Penn Manor applied open source principles to better prepare students for college, careers and beyond.
Central to the program is a student apprenticeship, where high school students form the core of a sophisticated help desk team, and write code used by their peers everyday.
