Hi everybody!

What is School LibreSoftwareDay?

Another "Day of... " initiative, for the benefit of free software ("libre software" in my mothertongue).

The project involves:
- helping lugs to get involved in some actions for the schools, by removing obstacles as collecting material, writing/editing papers in ordinary language for the newbies.
- contacting NGOs of education, i.e. non-computer people, but people interested in free software, as they realize importance of Internet/computers.

The website of this project is available in French (http://libresoftware.educ.free.fr) and Italian (http://libresoftware.educ.free.fr/italiano/indexit.html) and has:
- a databank with all schools with free software installed, in France and Italy
- a library of material for diffusion of free software in schools.

It has been conceived to help computer people to offer information in ordinary language to school-people (not only teachers). It went out as a "Day of... " for reasons of media visibility.

Thanks for your attention!
