Building Early Knowledge with Gcompris
GCompris is a free program for early learners ages 2-10.
Participants in this session will walk through the GCompris edutainment suite. They'll then see a short video of students at Westside Neighborhood School using the software and reflecting upon their learning and technology experience. The speaker will touch on the practicalities of using this project in a classroom or computer lab, and will point to the value of this and other open source programs in education.
Participants are also encouraged to share their experiences with open source edutainment and/or learning software and discuss the potential for building and sharing knowledge with open source.
