One computer per two children for your primary school by October: are
you up for it?
OSA  would like to find a UK primary school ready for a serious IT upgrade.
They will select one school from those that apply, and kit out the entire
school with sustainable computing solutions. Each classroom will have one
computer per two pupils, enabling better collaborative working than one PC
each, yet ensuring full access for all.
Sustainable computing: re-cycled hardware, and Free & Open Source
Software provide low running costs, and a maintainable solution
capable of integrating with existing IT, and growing further when needed.
Could interested schools please contact Richard Smedley at:
We hope to contact short-listed schools by early next week.
This installation will be completed to tie in with the release in October
of Edubuntu 7.10, an education-focussed release of the GNU/Linux Free Software
system, and with OSA's October software spectacular day, to be staged in
Liverpool - see the website nearer the time for more details.
