Álvaro, thank you for your e-mail. :)
A long time ago, I was thinking about doing some "Fedora
classes" on my high school.
So...today I was talking with Deputy Director of it. She is very nice, and very friendly.
She name is Rosa Montesdeoca.
I requested to him, to next year I can do Fedora classes for students
from 12 to 16 ages. And she is agree.
So, I will have to synthetise a lot of information with his help,
take some ideas from other teachers to adapt to students with different ages, and insert
some degrees for each courses.
Understood, that sounds like a plan. Develop a foundation base for those who are new in
order to build upon. :)
That's consist about show Fedora.... What's Fedora?,
What's awesome community?, What's Linux and GNU?, What's Free Software?,
What's DE's?, What's WM's?, What's Sugar, KDE, XFCE...? How to install
programs easily?, How to do homeworks (LibreOffice, or Sugar environment for more
babies)?... and so more.
Good questions, I like it! :D

While Linux is running our phones, friend requests, tweets, financial trades, ATMs and
more, most of us don't know how it's actually built. This short video takes you
inside the process by which the largest collaborative development project in the history
of computing is organized. Based on the annual report "Who Writes Linux," this
is a powerful and inspiring story of how Linux has become a community-driven phenomenon.
More information about Linux and The Linux Foundation can be found at
And I hope teaching these development areas that Fedora has got such
as clustering, clouding, virtualization and more, can help to find a job in the future.
The classes will be very summarized, and will be very adapted for
Great! Do you need some sort of "swag" and/or other assistance for this? Food
for thought. :D
That's also the opportunity to replace the blame .DOC/.DOCX
format that are used by some teachers.
Please, if you are teacher for high school, and you want share your
point of view, ideas, suggestions and more. Please let me know.
Cheers Fedora community!
Sending positive Fedora energy to all your computers now. :v)
Lastly, please have a Great Fedora day and evening! :~)
