| Kanagram mixes up the letters of a word, creating an anagram. You 
| have to guess what the mixed up word is. Kanagram is a great 
| childrenâs Linux program that features several built-in word lists, 
| hints, and a cheat feature which reveals the original word. 
| Kanagram also has a vocabulary editor, so you can make the game be 
| as hard as you want it to be.

Free Software in Education

,----[ Quote ]
| The notion of Free Software is definitely political. Iâm not stating the
| obvious, that any human work that affects a community in any way is
| political. Neither I suggest that the ideological (as opposed to purely
| technical) reasons of many Free Software supporters (and its critics)
| automatically brand it as a political issue. They alone might as well
| characterize it as philosophical, artistic or simply iconic. Free Software is
| political because it is strongly tied with a deep political question: that of
| education, and access to it.
| [...]
| You can read two great articles that support this: Richard Stallmanâs Why
| schools should exclusively use free software and Jean Peyratoutâs Why give
| precedence to Free Software at Schools. To summarize them, Free Softwares
| helps students assimilate and generate knowledge, instead of simply acquire
| technical skills; it offers education, instead of training. It helps build
| communities, and promotes (actually depends on) discussion, cooperation,
| initiative and active participation to the development process. In an
| increasingly expanding digital world, it embodies the ideals of education.
