Hey everyone!  FOSSed is coming up next week!  July 7th-9th  For those who
don't know, FOSSed is the Free and Open Source Software in Education
Conference....and we're in our 8th year!  This year is shaping up to be a
great one!  (What else would you expect?)  We want you to join us!

We've got great hands on sessions taught by professionals just like you
who've been using open source software in their schools and organizations.
These folks have been there just like you and they can relate to what you're
learning and experiencing.  Our presenters are excellent and the sessions
have been set up based on the input of our past attendees.

If you're an educator like me, you have to continually engage in
professional development for recertification.  Many schools and
organizations also require their non-teaching personnel to provide
documentation of course work for professional growth.  Well...FOSSed can
help!  Each year we team up with the folks at the University of Southern
Maine (USM) to provide "official college-backed" CEU's (continuing education
units) on an official transcript (from USM) that you can use for your
professional development documentation.  We provide 3.0 CEU's for attending
sessions at FOSSed.  What an awesome way to get some serious contact hours
while learning and having fun!  So...if you need credit...come to FOSSed!
It's not too late.  We have people registering every day and we hope you'll
be one of them.  FOSSed is next week, but there's still time to register (in
fact we take registrations right up to the first day of the conference).
We're flexible...if the financial arrangements might be delayed...let us
know...we'll do everything we can to make special arrangements....we want
YOU at FOSSed.

*F*ree and *O*pen *S*ource *S*oftware in *ED*ucation (hence FOSSed) can help
anyone get more bang for their buck while maintaining quality instruction
and programming in their school or organization.  We've got many great
sessions for you this year!  You can see the program under "Sessions" at
http://www.fossed.com.  We have half-day or full-day sessions where you
really get a chance to be "hands-on" try things out and learn from
professionals just like you who use this stuff every day!

Want to learn more?  You can join us at FOSSed!  Get the chance to talk to
others and see how they're using Open Source in their schools and
classrooms.  Along with the popular Google Apps sessions...there are many
other sessions for teachers and techies alike that will help you learn more
to enhance and transform your classroom, school, or district.  FOSSed is 3
days of fantastic hands-on learning, after-hours networking, and just plain
