The World Is Open – Curtis Bonk

3. Availability of Open Source and Free Software

  • The movement for free software and open source software are transforming learning opportunities around the planet. Instructional possibilities have advanced far beyond most of the methods and theories in which teachers have been trained. Your educational network extends around the world. Schools should consider the possibility of using only free software. You have more control and students can take it home. You escape price increases and domination from companies. The current economy will push this trend. Anyone who wants to survive must offer something free in the way of online services.
