Open Source - Doing More for Free

The title of this post links to a presentation I gave at the Midwest Education Technology Conference. The presentation covers open source titles applicable to education. We talked about the following programs and their proprietary alternatives:

Open Office<-->Microsoft Office
Audacity<-->Garage Band
iFolder (no competitive alternative)

We also talked about aligning some of these software packages with ideas to help train students on 21st Century literacies. That presentation can be found here.

My thanks to all those who attended!

Audacity != Garageband

It's more like a windows wav editor on steroids...
