A message from Steve Hargadon, Founder of Classroom 2

One of the professional hats I wear is as the director of CoSN.org's K-12
Open Technologies Initiative. I also run the Open Source Pavilions and
speaker series at the CUE.org and NECC ed tech conferences.

Because I'm a passionate advocate for Free and Open Source Software in K-12,
I've been feeling for a while that the time is right for a stand-alone
social network around its use. There is a good K-12 Open Source group
within the Classroom 2.0 community, but groups don't have the same full
functionality as stand-alone networks, and also don't have the same
visibility. So I've done some reconfiguring with my www.K12OpenSource.com
domain, creating a collaborative site which I hope will help to build the
Free and Open Source Software ecosystem in K-12
. The wiki that was
previously there is now at http://wiki.k12opensource.com/, and I've set up a
Ning community just for Open Source in K-12 at
http://community.K12OpenSource.com/.

I hope you'll come join the community and help to build it. I believe that
having an inviting and easy-to-use social network will increase exposure,
adoption, and idea-sharing around Open Source in K-12 at a time when it is
truly needed (both financially and pedagogically). We'll also need some
folks to start groups around favored programs--please consider coming and
doing that!
