Hey everyone!  Summer vacation is fast approaching!  For many that means the
kids are gone and it's time to recharge, refocus, and get things ready for
another great school year!  For many of us it also means having to find
creative ways to do more with less.  Budgets are tight and as a result
technology folks are looking for new ways to maximize their dollars.  FOSSed
can help!

Free and Open Source Software in EDucation (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!  The program is almost final, but I keep getting awesome
ideas that keep making it harder to finish ;-)  We'll have sessions like
"Making the Switch - moving to Google Apps", "Build an Electric Fence for
your Network", "Open Source Authentication using Samba/LDAP - aka linux and
active directory", "Nagios", "Creating Collaborative Learning Environments",
"Virtualization", "Open1to1.org", "A Teachers Toolbox", "Quick and Easy Web
tools for Motivating and Enhancing Learning", "Digital Citizenship in the
Elementary Grades", "Introduction to Open Source Multi-media Production
(video and audio)", "Beginning Linux - learn to how easy it us to use and
install!", "Whistle while you Work!", and SO MUCH MORE (I'm out of room
here)  ;-)  These are 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
