What's the Fuss about FOSS, Part 2: A Chat with David Thornburg
From Andy Carvin
"I've just posted the second part of my two-part essay, What's the Fuss About FOSS?, which explores the role of free and open source software (FOSS) in K-12 education. In the second installment, I interview author and edtech expert David Thornburg, who's just released a new book about FOSS and education."
"In my last post, I discussed the basics of free and open source software (FOSS). Now I'm going to turn to award-winning author and edtech advocate David Thornburg to offer an educational perspective. David is the founder of the Thornburg Center for Professional Development and the author of many books, including Campfires in Cyberspace and The New Basics: Education and the Future of Work in the Telematic Age. His latest book is When the Best is Free: An Educator's Perspective on Open Source Software.
