  8. <h1>Free Software in Education</h1>
  9. <p id="introduction">
  10. We actively promote the use of Free Software in schools and
  11. universities as it encourages schooling of understanding over
  12. product training and upholds the scientific principle.
  13. </p>
  14. <p>
  15. We have set up an <a
  16. href="/activities/education/eduteam.en.html">Education Task
  17. Force</a> to focus on these efforts. It acts as a hub and works on
  18. monitoring the European situation. We participate in Free Software
  19. events and assist other initiatives in making the change possible.
  20. </p>
  21. <p>
  22. The team currently develops a guide how to successfully deploy
  23. Free Software in schools and universities. Amongst other
  24. arguments here are four of the key benefits:
  25. </p>
  26. <ul>
  27. <li>
  28. <strong>Sharing:</strong> Using free software allows schools to
  29. teach children to share and cooperate.
  30. </li>
  31. <li>
  32. <strong>Learning to program:</strong> The possibility/freedom to
  33. tinker motivates children to learn more.
  34. </li>
  35. <li>
  36. <strong>Easy to administer:</strong> Free Software is stable,
  37. secure and reliable. It offers unrestricted access to the source
  38. code, thus allowing to modify or adapt it to the schools'
  39. needs.
  40. </li>
  41. <li>
  42. <strong>Licenses:</strong> With Free Software, teachers can give
  43. a copy to each student. There is no risk to mislead any child
  44. to use an illegal copy.
  45. </li>
