After graduating with a CS degree from a small liberal arts college in Iowa, I worked for a year as a sysadmin at the FSF. In 2013, I decided to embark on a six-month volunteering project in Nepal, where I worked with a local educational non-profit Open Learning Exchange affiliated with One Laptop Per Child. Nowadays, I am back home in the Czech Republic taking more CS courses at Charles University in Prague and contemplating what education means.

Last year, I spent six months volunteering with a Nepali educational non-profit called Open Learning Exchange, which develops interactive educational activities for OLPC laptops used by students in elementary schools. During my talk, I will share my experience about what free software can do to provide better educational opportunities in these schools that lack resources and governmental support we take for granted.
