Libre Learn Lab: a summit on freely licensed resources for education

by Ruben Rodriguez Contributions Published on Sep 30, 2016 02:51 PM
Libre Learn Lab is a two-day summit for people who create, use and implement freely licensed resources for K-12 education, bringing together educators, policy experts, software developers, hardware hackers, and activists to share best practices and address the challenges of widespread adoption of these resources in education. The 2nd biennial conference is Saturday, October 8th, and Sunday, October 9th, at the MIT Tang Center.

The keynote addresses will be delivered by the FSF’s own Richard M. Stallman, former Chief Open Education Advisor Andrew Marcinek and founder of HacKIDemia Stefania Druga. At the event, there will be a special tribute to Dr. Seymour Papert (the father of educational computing) by Dr. Cynthia Solomon.

The event will have workshops and presentations given by over 20 speakers, with perspectives from the free software, maker education, open education communities and more. The event will challenge participants with the theme “From Play to Policy," leading to next steps for the community.

Here are the details:
