I'm doing some work around an upcoming report for the Edu on technology-enhanced teacher professional development.
While my network here on Mastodon tends to be more tech-focused, would be great to hear from educators with expertise/case studies.
Particularly keen to hear from those in developing parts of the world and areas that tend to be under-represented in these kinds of reports!
So what I found out yesterday was that there *are* some freelancers / business owners using solely #FLOSS apps/tools/workflows, but that:
1. This can cause problems with clients.
2. When it doesn't cause problems, it's because clients are reasonably techie and share same values.
3. Most people find it difficult to give up Google stuff.
Thanks for the replies and boosts! Check back through this thread:
