** PROPOSED OSGEO EDU IRC MEETING AGENDA (See previous email for info on
I think general goal of this meeting is to get us working together again
and get the collaborative energy flowing again. More specifically I
think we should try and identify key collaborative priorities for the
edu group for this next year that we can take back to people on this
broader list. From this, I'd like to revise our group's "todo" list on
the wiki 
More specific agenda items I have are:
A. Ideas on how do we encourage more submissions to our educational
content inventory. What can we do to get more activity?
B. Can we move to a content management system that allows for "new
derivatives" to be created? Is anyone willing to take the lead on this?
I think this is particularly important for content where someone could
update something based on a new release of a software, or for
translations of content, etc. I've been wanting us to move in this
direction for several years now, but I'd like to achieve it this year.
C. Educational curriculum. Should we try and move forward on this
effort? Should we try and organize our content inventory system to
utilize the GIS&T Body of Knowledge framework which we now have
permission to use? This is the main task currently on our group's todo
list page 
D. How do we connect better to software teams? Education is a key to
getting their products used...
E. What educational groups might we target better? For example, I think
local governments might be a group that we should focus our attention
on. This connects to the discussion last year about developing some
Webcasts for an interested group in NY State. I dropped the ball on that
effort I'm afraid, but I think we should see if we can pick it up again.
F. How do we connect more with Local OSGeo groups? Are they doing
educational outreach? If so, can we set up a system where they are
sharing what they do through our system?
That's a pretty long list for an IRC chat.
If you have strong feelings on order or discussion or have other issues
you'd like to have us discuss, *please send them to me.*
If the date/time is agreeable to most everyone (see my previous email),
we'll send out IRC instructions next and a final agenda based on
feedback I receive.
