LibrePlanet talk: Digital freedom as pattern learning for life
I will be delivering my talk, “Retracing digital freedom as pattern learning for life,” on Sunday, March 20, 2022, 13:35–14:20 EDT, at the all-online LibrePlanet 2022 conference. You are so welcome to check it out!
The talk will: present learning components that introduce the topic of free software to learning environments in a way that supplements syllabi;
explore the meaning and role of free software as a model of what is (surprisingly!) valuable in life;
investigate technology enhanced learning that puts the human place at the center.
The slides include several pages of resources for you to consult in your own time: if they are not published by the conference, I will update this post with them after the conference.
This year’s conference brings together speakers ranging from Emacs’ former Org-father Bastien Guerry in his new role in government, to 100 rabbits, to Amin Bandali on the Net beyond the Web. Many interesting talks are listed on the program.
About the conference: LibrePlanet is a conference about software freedom, happening on March 19–20, 2022. The event is hosted by the Free Software Foundation (FSF), and brings together software developers, law and policy experts, activists, students, and computer users to learn skills, celebrate free software accomplishments, and face upcoming challenges. Newcomers are always welcome, and LibrePlanet 2022 will feature programming for all ages and experience levels.
