Benoit St-Andre

Educational Services Director
Revolution Linux

Benoit started his career as an high school science teacher and did planning for technology in those schools. Afterwards, he was appointed educational consultant on technology for the school district and was responsible for technology integration through the district. He then became curriculum specialist for science and technology, and was in charge of professional development for curriculum reform at that time.

He then was one of the authors of a science and technology textbook series for secondary curriculum. During that time, just before working at Revolution Linux, he also did some consulting, professional development and conferences about Free and Open Source software and Open Content.

Benoit has been around Open Source in Education for about ten years now, and believes Open Source is a key instrument on getting students and teaches to learn more efficiently with technology.

At Revolution Linux, he is Educational Resources Director, bridging the gap between IT and educational needs.
