Welcome back from the holiday break! We wanted to kick off this year with an episode where we hear from educators on how they use Ubuntu as a teaching tool. Together we can all find out how best to improve the ecosystem specifically for education!
We stream to both YouTube and twitch and we see the live chat in both for you to join the discussion and ask any questions of us. You are also welcome to ask your questions on this thread in advance and we’ll do our best to answer them on air
To accommodate the educator’s teaching schedule, this episode is a bit later than usual but if you can’t watch it live be sure to watch the recording at your convenience!
