Asturix promoting free software in education
On February 25 Luis Ivan Cuende, leader and creator of Asturix Project helped in teaching a course at Valladolid on migration to free software in schools.
The sessions addressed issues such as installation, the solution to common mistakes or free software equivalent to proprietary software.
All attendees, teaching professionals in the province Compostela Marista came out excited about the opportunities that free software gives them the revolution and this has for their classes.
Another point of the sessions was the presentation of the desktop environment On to the teachers, who seemed a great option for places where usability is as necessary as it is in schools.
From Asturix believes strongly in the implementation of free software for education as a way of fostering the independence of large multinationals and educate students in an open environment.
We also believe that free software is the perfect tool to promote entrepreneurship in the classroom because it provides endless possibilities at zero cost.
