  9. 9. Bridging the digital divide➢ "bridge the digital divide by adopting open source thus narrowing the effect of techno-colonialism"➢ “Need for technology that is controlled by local communities and not by foreign companies, that is public property and empowers people to be self-reliant” www.FOSSFA.net
  10. 10. "The most fundamental way of helping other people, is to teach peoplehow to do things better or how to better their lives. For people who use computers, this means sharing the recipes you use on your computer, in other wordsthe programs you run." 13
  11. 11. 1980s: Stallman defined “Free Software”➢ The freedom to ➢ use ➢ study ➢ distribute ➢ improve the program 14
  12. 12. 1998: “Open Source” sounds better as “Free Software”?

  15. 15. "Congratulations, youre on the winning team.Linux has crossed the chasm to mainstream adoption." ➢ Jeffrey Hammond, principal analyst at Forrester Research, LinuxCon, 2010“Linux has come to dominate almost every category ofcomputing, with the exception of the desktop” ➢ Jim Zemlin, Linux Foundation Executive Director, 2011
  16. 16. The possible effects Example: Extremadura➢ poorly developed region → economic revival ➢ based on FLOSS (customized GNU/Linux)➢ computer access for every student ➢ saved >18M € on initial 80,000 school computers ➢ total software cost: 1.08 Euro/PC/year➢ bigger project ➢ stimuli for companies, centres for citizens➢ economic revival -> European regional innovation award 19

  18. 18. Free Software repository
  19. 19. Open educational resources (OER) digitised materials offered freely and openlyfor educators, students and self-learners to use and reuse for teaching, learning and research
