I am trying to convince the admin/faculty/teachers of SHAN to shift their system and curriculum to linux based system and software, and one strategy that i'll use is to present schools/university/business that currenlty shifted from windows to linux, and that is my current problem. can anybody make a list of institutions that made a big shift.

i've learned from the article of sir daxumaming that Our Lady of Lourdes College Foundation already made a big move,

please do fill in my list thanks.

Our Lady of Lourdes College Foundation
Sacred Heart Academy of Novaliches (my school, partial, for 1st and 2nd year level)

would you mind if its not a local school? or you need some local school that may have migrated to foss?

mas ok sana sir kung mga local schools and business institutions, pero ok na din sir yung mga nasa foreign countries, para lang maiparating ko yung message that FOSS is the future of the industry.

it goes something like this ..... the school that i currently teaching with uses windows system in computer education for the 3rd, 4thth, and grade school level, while the 1st and 2nd year level (the one that i'm handling) uses ubuntu linux. what i wanted to suggest to the rest of our academe is to totally make a shift from windows to linux, for various reasons,

1. from what i've heard there's a petition in congress asking government offices to shift their systems to FOSS.

2. with the current trends in the computer industry, there is a user shift from propriety software to FOSS.

3. in keeping in step with the trend i would like to train my student with the the use of linux (in particular ubuntu).

i do believe that it is not feasible if i wont be able to convince the rest of the academe to make the same move, and that is why i need to show them a list that will prove that some schools/colleges and business are starting to use linux and FOSS.

thanks for the info mga sir, i failed to win my case though. reason... it seems even my colleagues in the computer department are too afraid to migrate to linux. well there will always be next school year. and hopefully by that time maiuntog ko na sila sa mga monitor nila hehe.

half won naman yung laban ko. linux pa din para sa 1st and 2nd year students ko.

thanks for the help mga sir.

LORMA Colleges (http://lorma.edu/index.php) uses their own flavor of Linux LORMA Linux (http://linux.lorma.edu/) but I don't know if they have updated it recently. They are still using M$ Windows but I think they use Linux in the internet room.

For more info, check Distrowatch (http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=lorma)

Please follow the link bellow to see other Schools, Universities, libraries, community centres from North America had chosen to follow the trend. Not only everybody is happy for the move but, in most cases students never realized they were using LINUX; it looks the same even better than WINDOWS the have been using before:

@malleus

advice ko lang sa susunod pwede mo dagdagan ng cost-comparison. pro and cons ng windows versus linux(ubuntu). google mo lang.

Ganyan din dito sa campus... mga k1 (grade 1- 4th year High school) gumagamit ng Win XP alibi nila mahirap daw linux.. kaya college department lang gumagamit.. syempre pipiliin ng mga teachers yung xp kasi tinatamad sila magseminar sa linux.. :lolflag:

Tamad lang naman kalaban natin diyan, ang ginagawa ng gobyerno pag ka kailangan ng seminar, minsan sinasabayan nila ng outing. Parang Seminar Vacation, minsan sa Baguio o sa isang private pool sa Laguna.

Kaya dapat talaga ngayon palang required na sa resume sa mga papasok sa mga Government position nandoon na ang knowlegable in Linux and OpenOffice. At parang yung FOSS Act lang ang makakagawa niyan.

Hmmm wag naman sana magagalit ang ating mga guro.. kasi sa sobrang kabisihan they dont care kung anu ang nagbabago sa technology at mas pinipili nilang magtiis sa windows kahit may may virus. pero ayus yun ah? seminar na out of town?:)

that is nice. dumarami na talagang mga company ang nagshift sa linux, dapat talaga sumunod sa trend ang DepEd at mga private schools. yung isang technician na kakilala ko hindi natanggap sa trabaho kasi ang requirement daw dapat marunong ng linux.

Gandang araw po s lahat,. nice to know that we have a forum like this :-)

i'm a secondary skul teacher of Taytay National High School, Taytay, Rizal,and appointed as the ict coordinator. we received additional 20 workstations + 1 server, all running in edubuntu and other free open source software, together with other skuls we receive free training in using thi, bundles with laboratory management and website developement training, by the way its the project of the Commission on Information & Communications Technology operating under the Office of the Malacanang,.in our district, first district of rizal,.the budget of purchasing this wonderful equiptment came from the Office of Hon. Cong. Michael Duavit.,(maraming salamat po sir at maraming salamat sa CICT at kay Her Excellency President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, saludo po kami).

Last wik we have an In-Service training, part of this is ict literacy training for teachers & have even included ict integration, we have lots of multimedia cd's for english, math, science and social studies.,i have also introduced them some websites that they can use in teaching.,

As expected the teachers liked the Edubuntu especially the"first timers", other users got confused of the icons hehe,. but still they able to use it easily., its just a matter of adapting.,"its like using nokia cp then migrating to other brand of cp, as long as the symbols or icons are the same, they function the same" i said to them,.they agreed.hehe
