I completely agreee. I was in the FLC for a visit during the media&learning conference, and I noticed the "windows" effect .. the people presenting technology was very nice and when we asked (also Edith Ackermann was there)  for a non proprietary learners response systems they introuced

I  think they should focus more on  cases of good uses of ICT also for "low budget needs"

My best regards

a friend of mine is involved in an european project which promotes the use of ICT in public schools:

This project is coordinated by several Ministries of Education, but it's also supported by some big ICT players, as you can see here:

My friend is concerned about the presence of these companies. It's quite likely that they are going to use the project to promote their products.  As far as I can see, all these companies produce proprietary software or hardware.

What can we do to guarantee the presence of Free Software projects and companies in this project?  Is there any European directive which recommends the use of Free Software in such situations?

I think that FSFE may take a stand and do some "lobbying" about this project.  What do you think?
