Hi all,

We are happy to share with you the upcoming 1st International Congress
on Democratic Digital Education and Open Edtech. It will take place in
Barcelona, Spain on 12-13-14 July 2022 and it is organised by Xnet,
University of Barcelona, Open Knowledge Foundation (OKFN), and the
postgraduate course on Technopolitics and Rights in the Digital Era
(University of Barcelona).  Simultaneous translation of panels and
presentations will be provided in Catalan, Spanish, and English.

This event is organised as part of the Plan for the Democratic
Digitalisation of Education that Xnet created back in 2019. This plan
included, among other things, the development of an agile digital
education infrastructure based on widely consolidated and robust
auditable code.  The tool, called DD, has a pilot that is already
running in several schools in Barcelona and is growing rapidly.

This congress aims, firstly, to analyse how the digital world is being
addressed in education from various perspectives and, secondly, to
propose concrete corrective solutions, some of which will be
implemented live and in real time. [1]

One of the interesting sessions is “First was the code: digital rights,
auditing, interoperability in education. DD Free Software, a tool as
part of an ecosystem" which will take place on 13 July 2022 from 16:00
to 17:45 CEST. During this session, Xnet will present the DD Tool that
has merged different consolidate Free Software tools for education.
Then a representative of each of these tools will present her/his work:
IsardVDI, 3point,Big Blue Button, Martin Dougiamas of Moodle, Etherpad,
Maadix, and eXO. The Free Software Foundation Europe will take part in
the session as well with the goal of sharing inputs regarding the
importance of Free Software solutions in public services.

On 14 July 2022 from 10:00 to 15:00 CEST the "International Devops Room
around the DD Tool" will take place. This will be a technical session
on the software and systems architecture used in the DD tool. If you
are interested in contributing to the tool, don’t miss this session, as
it will serve as well as a call to the talent of system  developers and
administrators around the world to contribute to the DD code for the
Democratic Digitization of Education. This activity  will be held in
