Presenting an open educational tablet in a workshop / Zentrum für Informationstechnologien und Medienbildung (ZIM) - Fwd: freie Tablets

Hello to all of you,

things went a bit quiet about the tablet-project in Lower 
Saxony/Niedersachsen in Germany. But they went on with speed.

After a workshop within the official Lower-Saxony 
Media-consultant-system for schools with topic 'Free Knowledge - Free 
Software' a question for presenting a more or less open tablet appeared:

Version oder einer Version, die KDE-Software nutzen kann, gesprochen.

Hast du Lust, eine ähnliche Veranstaltung zu diesem Themenbereich
durchzuführen? Unser Tablet-Projekt, zu dem ich nicht gehöre, ist 
zurzeit auf
iPad ausgerichtet, später soll Android dazukommen. Ich denke ein Impuls 
aus der Ecke freier Systeme täte auch gut.

I owned a WeTab and feel enthusiastic about PlasmaActiveTwo, but the 
WeTab-hardware is too poor to cope with - even cheaper - 
multimedia-tablets. For to prepare (and present) an other system I do 
not have enough money/knowledge/time.

In a one-day workshop I would prepare to present the difference to a 
common Android or iOS-system from educational and political view.

So I seek (THE MAXIMUM):
An IT-professional with an insight view to KDE-Plasma-Active and with 
about 15 prepared (maybe different) tablets and fully working OS 
including a touch-optimized office-suite, mutimedia-player and working 
multimedia-devices. This person presents also a glossy booklet where to 
buy at least 30 of these machines and a second booklet from an 
IT-company which offers support to interested schools.

Alternatively there is someone out there (THE EXTREME MINIMUM):
Who could present ONE fully working tablet, at least with an 
office-suite, multimedia-player and browser. A (external) camera for 
creating documentations would be great. Unfortunately Aaron Saigo's 
VIVALDI-tablet seems to be no choice, because this device is too small.

When: In June or beginning July.
Where: In the Zentrum für Informationstechnologien und Medienbildung 
(ZIM) of the NLQ in Hildesheim near Hannover/Germany

Please contact me very soon!

There is an open door to establish a KDE-tablet in schools. All of the 
proprietary tablet-systems own heavy disadvantages, which appear much 
more negative in school-environment. So please support this workshop.

Writer needed for UK school deployment of KDE software

Hi all,

I received a mail a few days ago from a school in the UK that is doing
a roll out of ~400 computers using KDE software. The official
unveiling will be at the start of the next school year (September) but
they are already at a pretty good stage - I've seen some nice
pictures. This is quite cool news, since the UK often sucks at this
kind of thing (free software in education, or public institutions in
general). There have been a few others, but there is not normally a
whole lot of press about it.

So, we need a writer. It's a fairly simple, but fun task. I''ll put
you in touch with the contact at the school and you cna put together
an interview (we can help with questions, standard things like why KDE
software, how's the process going, what improvements could be made,
what do students/teachers/parents think, any plans for further
expansion). Ultimately the article would go on the Dot (and there's a
fair chance some UK news outlets might pick it up, particularly if I
poke some people I know...).

Publication probably wouldn't happen until September, but that gives
plenty of time to ask some questions and do follow up as required near
to or after launch. It alos means that, unlike many things here, you
won't be under a lot of time pressure. Who might be interested? It
could suit a past or new writer for the Dot equally well.

Cheers,
Stu

yes, the hardware of the webtab is outdated.

One important question certainly is: Who is going to invest 
into the presentation. My company Intevation certainly has
the knowledge to show and support Free Software tablets,
likewise other companies and individuals have.
However even to do a one day workshop which of course should display a product 
which is as good as it can, would be a significant investment.

Note that most sold tablets with Android are ARM architecture currently
and thus running Android. As far as I know there is no good Android-ARM 
packaging for Plasma-Active so far.
So maybe demonstrating a non-Android or non-ARM systen could be easier
to show the maturity of the software. 

As an office suite you can show Calligra.
For Email and Calenders you can try Kontact Touch.

I would like to state, that a commitment for an open tablet should *not* 
be non-commercial, meaning: There should be and there is a perspective 
for earning money with such a system [While as an outsider I am always 
wondering how programmer's work is paid, e.g. the fantastic 
KDE-environment...]

Maybe it sounds like a political campaign 'There are only a few days 
left to save the world...', but: Fact is, this tablet-project in Lower 
Saxony is started, supported with political power from the 
administration, and last but not least a workshop 'Free Knowledge - Free 
Software' at ZIM/Hildesheim with the FSFE activated a certain 
consciousness for alternatives beside tablet-devices with iOS or 
Android. And - short version - these devices coming from consumer-market 
do not fulfill their promises in school until now.
The thing to do is presenting an alternative NOW, I think.

I forgot the winking smiley, but of course I dont expect that! The 
question is: How can we present such a tablet? What about Aaron Seigo? 
What about BasysKom? What is a 'significant investment'?
Apple, Samsung, Microsoft and other global players go in and out at the 
old-fashioned ZIM/Hildesheim and use their strong marketing to place 
their products.
An event like this would be visited by official media-consultants who 
consults schools what to buy and what to use. What about that in 
commercial view?

So an ViewSonic Viewpad 10 [1] is in this case the best choice? All 
other devices seem to be netbooks/integrated touchscreens, right? Is 
there a chance to get one or more machines- bought maybe from ZIM/NLQ - 
  equipped with KDE-Plasma-Active by professionals, means: You ?

Mail (Kontact Touch) under PlasmaActive worked wonderful, but I've never 
seen Calligra working. A Mail-client has a low priority for school. For 
an educational tablet a browser, a multimedia-player and an office-suite 
is needed.

Updated date (The question of 'When?'):
"27./28.06.12 (wohl in Verden)
04./05.07.12 vielleicht in Hildesheim"

At KDE-booth at Cebit 2012 somebody told better not to present an 
unfinished open tablet. Since PlasmaActiceTwo quite a time past. So what 
is the state of this project?

What about a K-Ubuntu equipped system? Should I plan such an event anyway?

interviews

Hi Tomas,

I would like to introduce you Princesa, a journalist from Spain that
have recently helped me in several press notes related with KDE Spain.
She is new in KDE but wants to collaborate.

I was thinking if you need some help with interviews, so she can put
her hands into them too, as a easy way for her to begin to
collaborate.

Saludos
