As a Director of Technology I have to wear many hats and maintain a limited budget. So, I am always looking for ways to get educational based applications that are educational based and provide higher level order of thinking challenges. Well, one weekend I spent time searching for open source software and came across the article I have uploaded. It provides open source software for PCs, Apples, and Linux OS systems. I have read through the 77 pages and downloaded several recommended applications. Please download and view the document and provide your thoughts on these applications. I also ask that you post your own open source recommendations for all viewers and members to share as well as pass them along to their own educators.
