I completely agreee. I was in the FLC for a visit during the 
media&learning conference, and I noticed the "windows" effect .. the 
people presenting technology was very nice and when we asked (also Edith 
Ackermann was there)  for a non proprietary learners response systems 
they introuced  http://www.socrative.com/

I  think they should focus more on  cases of good uses of ICT also for 
"low budget needs"

My best regards
