                               What is Open?
                                David Mandel
                         <dmandel at DavidMandel.com>

    David Mandel is interested in distilling the core ideas
    from the philosophy of Open Source Software and extending
    these into other areas like music, publishing, farming,
    and education.  In the past he has given presentations
    on Open Source Agriculture.

    In this presentation, David wants to discuss Open Source
    in education.  This is not a presentation about using
    Open Source Software in traditional classrooms as much
    as it is a discussion about using Open Source Philosophy
    to change traditional classrooms.  We will discuss the
    work of John Gatto author of "Dumbing Us Down", the Moore
    Method of teaching mathematics, and David Mandel's personal
    experience teaching mathematics and computer classes in
    community colleges.



            7:00 - 7:30  Business
                 We will discuss the status of our ongoing projects
                 including PLUG's monthly Advanced Topics meetings,
                 PLUG's monthly hands on clinics, PLUG for Education,
