One thought on “Free Software, Computer-rich Learning Adventures & Alfie Kohn!”
For your readers: That’s free, as in beer, software. Too bad such a great sounding conference pushes “free” proprietary software on educators. Apparently, propagating technical and social barriers is a part of constructing “modern” knowledge.
Oh and the best part, I see some (all?) of this shackleware requires a proprietary OS in order to “learn” with it. But who cares… it’s FREE!
