This is just a quick note to say how excited we are about meeting yall at OpenEd Jam in less than two weeks!
Five important things to note:
1. We have a few spots left –please share the registration link!
Please tweet, post, and share this link with people you think might want to join us at OpenEd Jam: http://www.openedjam.org/registration
2. What should I bring?.
We're excited to announce Turtle Art Day happening July 25th! We thought it would be a good idea to invite students to OpenEd Jam to learn a creative and fun free/open source software. Do you know a young person who would be interested in this opportunity?

We are launching a blog series to introduce members of the OpenEd Jam community. As a kickoff to this series, we have interviewed Walter Bender, one of our Keynote Speakers. We hope you enjoy this series!
Interview with Walter Bender on April 8th, 2014
Mariah Noelle: What motivates you to promote free and open education software around the world?
Walter Bender: I want children everywhere to have opportunities to resolve rather than accept the problems that they encounter in life.
