Kakatapos ko lang ang ginagawa kong Training Design Document para sa proyektong iSchools ng CICT-NCC bilang pangunahing trainer ng IOSN ASEAN+3 sa darating na buwan. Ikatlong burador na ito, at sa kalagayan nito ngayon ay hindi na ito hilaw ng lubusan. Hindi ito madaling gawin dahil maiksi lamang ang panahong nakalaan sa paghahanda nito at mabagal ang pagbalik ng mga komento mula sa mga susuri ng nilalaman. Bukod dito ay marami pang mga kailangang maihanda na gagamitin sa mismong training. Sana ay makapagsulat ako ng mahusay upang maipaliwanag ang mga kailangang matutunan ng mga dadaan sa training na ito.
One thing going for the iSchools project is that at least 320 public high schools all over the Philippines will benefit from being equipped with a networked computer laboratory with no less than 20 computers all running Edubuntu 7.04! More than 25 SUCs will be involved in the training of computer laboratory managers in the different high schools, and all of these people will be exposed to using Free Software and Open Source Software. This will certainly be a Good Thing(tm) for adoption of FOSS by teachers and students at the secondary level. I hope that after the training this year (2007), the lab managers and the schools will continue to use the software installed instead of resorting to proprietary systems thereafter.
The five-day training material that I am preparing is intended to be a crash course in basic systems administration. As designed, it will not be as comprehensive as I would like it to be, but it will serve as a good starting point from which the trainees can work from on the road to learning more about FOSS and GNU/Linux.
