Open source in education

Learn. Teach. Partner.

We believe that open source is the future of technology—and that it's important to incorporate the open source way into learning, teaching, and partnering.

Why it's important

The importance of open source in education

Open source culture and concepts help students, teachers, schools, and communities have a better learning experience being free to share their ideas and build on the work of others.

Learning and teaching "the open source way" will better prepare students for their careers, while helping schools differentiate themselves and growing the next generation of open source contributors.
