Journées du libre 09


Find here a video registration of the conference ‘Free software in education’, which took place in the context of the yearly festival Journées du libre, on
9 may 2009 in the Maison des Cultures de Saint-Gilles in Brussels.

In this framework, Constant invited teachers connected to various art and design schools to discuss the way open content licenses and free software find their way in the courses they are currently teaching.
Why do they think Free Culture brings something important to art and to education? What is the difference free software can make in this context? How do they think the situation will further develop?
