      • OpenEducationDisc promoted to the community but also a Microsoft Academy
      • Interoperability is key
    • Policy
      • If there's a good open source solution that meets the curriculum needs then we use it
      • When there is no viable open source solution, we get on with using the proprietary one and set a review date
      • If we use a closed source system, we make sure that it has file format interoperability with an open source alternative in order to enable use at home
    • Policy
      • When we modify systems in any way, we make the revised code available on an open source basis
      • Where possible we only implement systems that are platform independent to the end user
      • Where an open source system exists that nearly works, we work with it and feed back to the community
    • Policy
      • We understand that young people need transferable software skills and select systems on that basis
      • We review all systems, both open and closed source, on a regular basis to ensure that they are still fit for purpose and serve our young people in the best way possible
    • Image source http://bit.ly/2F6YQQ Next steps Discussion Agree a way forward Issue a policy document Promote
