  7. <h1>Call for Participation: FSFE Track About "Digital Education" During the Libre Software Meeting in Strasbourg, France</h1>
  8. <p newsteaser="yes">From 7 to 12 July there will be the Libre
  9. Software Meeting in Strasbourg, France. The conference also known as
  10. RMLL is annualy rotating and currently the biggest Free Software
  11. event in France. This year, the main topic is "Digital Education:
  12. building captivity or new empowerment?". With <a href="">the FSFE track</a> we are
  13. looking for inspiring insights about golden cages and liberation not
  14. only in educational institutions but in our everyday lives.</p>

  17. <p>The Free Software Foundation Europe is happy to align with
  18. Hackstub, the Strasbourg hackerspace that is organising the <a href="">Libre
  19. Software Meeting 2018</a>, and to generate an own FSFE track. With the
  20. main topic being "Digital Education: building captivity or new
  21. empowerment?" we would like to concentrate on the golden cages that
  22. surround us and that rope more and more people in every day. For us
  23. at the FSFE, digital education is not just about college education.
  24. It is also about the digital literacy we need to spread within the
  25. digital society.</p>
  26. <p>We have seen a lot of new forms of social exchange and
  27. collaboration coming up in the past decade and are in a stage where
  28. there is hardly any day passing at our work place, in our social
  29. network or our daily environment that does not require the
  30. interaction with software in any form. A lot of this software is
  31. proprietary or interacts with other proprietary software. Every day,
  32. new people teach themselves or are told how to use these proprietary
  33. services - be it by order of their employer, by peer-pressure in
  34. their networks or even enforcement by administrations. In some way or
  35. the other, every day new people get their own "digital
  36. education".</p>
  37. <p>In the FSFE's track we look for ways that do not rope us in but
  38. empower us instead. Free Software solutions that give us the liberty
  39. to keep sovereignty of our data, to collaborate on new technologies
  40. and to help everyone to understand the technology behind. You know
  41. about a good piece of software that other people can learn from or
  42. use in their daily interactions? You have insights on administrative
  43. or educative processes? You can explain contexts that lead to
  44. dependencies or empowerment?</p>
  45. <p>Then <a href="">apply for the FSFE track</a> in one of the four categories:
  46. "Initiation", "Tech", "Society" or "Culture &amp; Art". We are
  47. looking for talks and workshops. You can find more detailed
  48. information about the different topics on the <a
  49. href="">LSM2018 pages</a>. The deadline to
  50. apply is 15 April.</p>
