Description:

The OpenEducationDisc is a modification of the OpenDisc format by Teachers and Computer Specialists with a passion for education. The purpose of it is to provide students with the software that they need to complete school work at home. Most students don.t have jobs and it is unfair to ask for them or a parent/guardian to buy expensive software to get the best out of their education. Hence everything is free and we encourage you to make copies of this CD and lend it to you friends.

The project was started in 2007 by Mr. Kemp, a Computing Teacher in London, UK. It is now thriving in schools across the globe and was the 2006/2007 winner of the Teach First School Projects Competition.
