Education Team


With the increasing usage of information technology, software competency has become a key skill in modern society. Software is taking an essential part of our lives for the way we communicate, socialise and produce. In the overwhelming majority of sectors and industries, students of all ages require strong IT skills to become employable, productive, and competitive.

Free Software applications provide the best tools for educators. They foster transferable skills and concepts based upon international open standards, rather than familiarity with individual products from particular vendors. Free Software in education upholds scientific principles of participation, collaboration and peer review, and in doing so develops additional learning skills by sharing knowledge and achievements amongst students. Free Software usage also encourages a culture of participating and doing instead of just consuming.

Mission Statement

The goal of FSFE's Education Team is to bring the benefits of Free Software to all education-related activities and institutions. In accordance with FSFE's Self Conception, we shall bring the use of Free Software in education to political agendas across European borders, and inform administrations, teachers, students and their parents about the benefits Free Software provides.

We shall foster communication and cooperation among these groups, and establish and extend dialogue between them and Free Software developers and advocates. We shall establish a legal framework that shall prohibit discrimination against Free Software and its users, and make available FSFE's extensive expertise to all parties involved.

Get Involved

The team is constantly looking for more volunteers. If you want to be part of this effort (which means that you are devoted to it, not just observing), we have some requirements:
