I'm just back from a 2 months vacation far from KDEland ;)
I am thrilled that you already are planning an Edu day and I like the 2 sides
of it (institutional and technical). I would even add a 3rd side if possible:
a demo lab with desktops, laptops, subnotebooks like EeePC and Classmate
PCs, ... If possible I would personally also like to see a "mini classroom
setting" in action with a server.
A few other ideas:
- check with Africa to see what countries are interested and what contacts we
can make (institutional and technical)
- ask Mandriva people if they are interested to present their solution (they
are developing an Edu solution in France and are also involved with Classmate
PC) I guess it will depend on how they can offer this solution to other
countries than France.
- check with other distros if they want to take the opportunity to send their
Edu people (Suse, Debian, ...)
- check with Mauricio if we can bound with Brazilian people
- check with GNOME people if they have people interested in Edu (Bruno Coudoin
from GCompris while not a GNOME member should be invited)
- maybe set up a KDE working group if this is needed: it could analyze the
current strengths of KDE4 in Education (kiosk mode, KDE-Edu,...) and help
define the weaknesses, especially after the Edu Day.
I'll be happy to assist you in anything you need and I wish you the best in
the preparation of this day.
