October 2016: Photos from Libre Learn Lab, in Cambridge

by Jeanne Rasata Contributions Published on Oct 12, 2016 07:48 AM

RMS was in Cambridge, Massachusetts, last week, at the Libre Learn Lab (2016-10-08–09), a summit “for people who create and implement freely licensed resources for 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.” He was one of the keynote speakers and, on October 8th, gave his speech “Education for Freedom with Free (Libre) Software,”1 underscoring why exclusive use of free software is essential to educational institutions' role in teaching social responsibility and independence:
