Although the Linux installfest event ten years
ago may not have been hugely productive (eight
people six hours = four working Linux computers),
it got the ball rolling to get computers at the
school. Since then, every teacher has received a
laptop, projector and document camera. The
school has multiple interactive whiteboards, a fully
functioning computer lab (actually two—one is
made up of aging computers), digital microscopes,
cameras and video cameras, a completely wireless
network with networked printing and storage
capabilities, an in-house server, student e-mail
accounts, and we’re slowly looking to integrate
tablet devices during the next few years as the
technology becomes more inexpensive and funding
levels rise (if that ever happens). So, Linux (I believe
it was the Red Hat distribution) laid the red carpet
for technology at our school. Thanks.
