    Speaking Hangman is a cross-platform bilingual game that's both fun and educational, and suitable for the whole family.
    Speaking Hangman is an educational game to practice and expand your English and Spanish vocabularies. The game is designed for people of any age above 7 years.

    You'll need to have a Java 2 Java Runtime Environment installed on your system to play the game. If you're not sure if the version of Java you're running is adequate to the task, you can test it on the page you download the program from.

    Linux as a server for schools

    As a file server for schools, Linux is ready now. It can act as a native Appletalk, SMB, NFS, or NetWare server. Files stored on a Linux system can be simultaneously available for users of all four of those networking systems (and more, although those are by far the most common in schools). Linux also enjoys an advantage in price here over the alternatives, since its legendary efficiency and low cost mean that computers considered obsolescent under other operating systems can be put back into service as functional Linux servers.

    When it comes to providing Internet services, Linux again easily beats the more commonly used scholastic systems. Setting up Linux systems to provide email accounts, an NNTP news server, a Web server, file and print services, and firewalling, proxy, and IP masquerading is fairly easy, and certainly rewards the effort. Given that Linux is free, and can run well on older hardware, there is no reason why numerous severs couldn't be set up. For many high schools, creating these systems could be part of the learning experience itself. The benefits could be felt in many areas, including mailing lists for staff and student organizations, for instance.

    Administrative software

    What about the systems that students, teachers, and staff actually work with directly? These systems have mostly been Macintosh and more recently Microsoft Windows machines. How does Linux fare in that niche?

    Unfortunately, not too well at the moment. There are a number of projects working on addressing deficiencies in application software for Linux, but few of them have software currently ready for wide-spread deployment. However, work is progressing rapidly on many of these programs and you can expect to see useful Linux software for schools shortly.

    On the administrative side, we've heard teachers say that if there isn't a good Linux gradebook program, Linux will never get onto teachers' desks. Period. Luckily, some of these teachers are also Linux fans and are working on programs that have the features they want rather than those that software companies think will sell. There's K12Admin, an account administration program written and currently in use at the Coast Mountain School District in British Columbia, Grader, a GNOME gradebook program being written by several teachers and students, KTeacher, a KDE gradebook being written by another teacher, and Roster, an account administration program written and used at Laney College. In addition, OpenClassroom, the Authenticated User Community (AUC), LearnLoop, and Zschool all intend to provide Web-based educational "environments" with integrated administrative and collaborative capabilities. Work is also beginning on a general testing and quizzing application that can be run by itself or integrated with some or all of the environments mentioned above.

    Today sees the launch of the Cape Town Open Education Declaration which aims to make learning and teaching materials freely available online, to improve the quality of education in schools in South Africa and the rest of the world, leveraging the potential for open collaboration on the Web.

    The declaration resulted from a meeting organised by the the Shuttleworth Foundation and the Open Society Institute in Cape Town last September and it already has some high-profile international signatories, including Ubuntuā€™s Mark Shuttleworth, Jimmy Wales of Wikipedia, Lawrence Lessig of Creative Commons and musician Peter Gabriel.

    Although named after Cape Town, this declaration is part of a global initiative to encourage governments and publishers worldwide to make all of their publicly funded materials freely available online. That the declaration has already been translated into 15 languages so far is testament to its global reach.

    For students , it may be a busy time for studying at the end of January. I was interesting in trying out some flash-cards for memorizing question and answer format material, but without using lots of small paper cards. It turns out thereā€™s a great flash-card application in the Ubuntu repositories.

    Mnemosyne does a lot more than traditional paper cards can. It decides which questions to show when using a zero to five grading system. How well you grade your answer determines if the question will be asked relentlessly or rarely.

    What is SAGE Math? It's an open source effort to replace expensive commercial closed-source mathematics software with open source alternatives. William Stein, the Mathematics Professor at the University of Washington who started the SAGE Math project says:

    "SAGE is a project at University of Washington whose goal is to create an optimal free open source software environment for research and experimentation in algebra, geometry, number theory, cryptography, and related areas. I started SAGE in 2005 by combining together the very best of existing free software (e.g., Singular, PARI, GAP, Macaulay2, Maxima, gfan, etc), creating interfaces to non-free software (e.g., MAGMA, Maple, Mathematica), and beginning to fill in the gaps with new code. Now dozens of developers have joined me in working on filling these gaps and making SAGE a polished and high quality piece of free software."

    Thousands of Polish high school students now have a chance to learn about GNU/Linux and the benefits of using free software as Polish FLOSS foundation together with school headmasters, supported by local authorities organize a series of lectures on free software in education. PolishLinux.org has a report summary of the first 3 months of the campaign.
