Dear Educational Leader:

Schools around the United States and the world are discovering the

benefits of Open-Source Software. In Indiana alone, over 150,000

students use Open-Source Software every day. Not only does Open-Source

Software save money, it allows schools to extend essential educational

software to students' homes and into after-school programs, providing

extended learning opportunities at no cost.

Are you looking for ways to provide more technology with less money?

Could your teachers benefit from a Virtual Learning Environment (Moodle,


Do you want a solution for all of your students to access their school

work from home?

Is your school community looking for ways to increase student engagement

and learning?

Have you thought about developing an Open-Source Software strategy to

increase technology access while controlling costs?

Join us September 25-27, 2008 in Indianapolis, Indiana for the K-12 Open

Minds Conference! This is an unparalleled opportunity to talk with

teachers, administrators and technology staff from around the U.S. and

the world. We expect more than 600 attendees, from the US, Europe, Asia

and North and South America. Dozens of sessions that address teaching

and learning, leadership and technical issues related to open

technologies make this conference a "must attend" event.

Teaching and Learning sessions will feature experienced teachers from

around the world demonstrating successful strategies and techniques.

Technology and Infrastructure sessions will feature experts from around

the world on issues such as: connecting to your local Windows or Mac

authentication server, managing large and small network deployments, and

using interactive whiteboards in classrooms in Linux and open-source

environments, and more. Additional sessions designed for Leadership and

Policy will demonstrate how policy initiatives and effective strategies

for using Open-Source Software help to meet your educational objectives.
