Here are some ideas chronologically ordered concerning the future of the education SIG. If you have any further ideas or thoughts, please add them here. These were just the ideas, which came in my mind... please feel free to discuss them!

#* [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=446093 this bug] currently prevents us from going on '''resolved - thanks Rex!'''

| release a first preview spin for F9 || done
#* a kickstart file is almost ready '''done - kickstart is ready'''

|-
#* ask release engineering for final admission '''spin will first only be released as a preview'''
+
| get the Edu Math Spin officially approved for F10 (see [[SIGs/Education/EducationLive|here]] and [[Features/EducationMathSpin|here]]) || done
# create features for F10 spins

|-
#* create at least two spins (that fit on a CD) - they should both have the ability to log on to a terminal server (using tsclient, krdc or a similar solution)
+
| talk about spins for F11 (science spin?) || to be done
#*# one for children, maybe using the Sugar interface (depending on how many activities we have in Fedora for F10), including software like...

|-
#*#* childsplay
+
| request special artwork for the upcoming edu spins || work in progress (request located [[Artwork/DesignService#Fedora_Education|here]])
#*#* tuxtype

|-}
#*#* tuxpaint
 
#*#* gcompris
 
#*#* etc
 
#*# another one for teenagers (relying on KDE or GNOME, depending on the dependencies and the space), including software (among the obvious applications - office & internet) like...
 
#*#* dia
 
#*#* planner
 
#*#* jokosher
 
#*#* blender
 
#*#* gimp
 
#*#* inkscape
 
#*#* bluefish
 
#*#* celestia
 
#*#* drgeo
 
#*#* etc (an idea is located [[SIGs/Education/Spin|here]]
 
#*# a third one, produced and maintained by Warren & the LTSP guys, released on a DVD - but it would still include further educational applications selected by the education SIG
 
#* possibly: ask the guys from the art team, whether somebody would like to create a special theme for an educational spin (with appropriate colours and so on)... '''request sent, awaiting response'''
 
# inform universities & schools, as well as students & educators concerning their possibilities (organize talks...)
 
# create an educational portal, e.g. at edu.fedoraproject.org or education.fedoraproject.org, where we might introduce programs and publish related articles, so that educators and further interested people could get an overview on what we're offering and on which software they may use...
 
#* talk about this on the mailing list (or in a meeting)
 
#* possibly: create a ticket for infrastructure team
