Great idea - not sure we need a team, per se, but a place to collect
these would be of great help, IMO.
I would be bold enough to turn this email around and challenge you to
help lead this by putting together a short presentation on LibreOffice /
ODF / FOSS as if you where to deliver this to a small group, say at a
lunch time presentation to the IT team of a small public school system
in CA, as this I believe is your personal perspective. To be clear I'm
not speaking of a template specifically, rather it is the content, write
a 15 minute presentation.
I would not be so bold without willingness to also help - IMO a great
presentation to have as a shared resource would be one going over the
pre-LibreOffice history of the applications. Specifically I'm thinking
of taking the wiki page from OOo that covers the first 10 years and
using that as the basis for this, 4-6, page presentation "Roots - The
Story of LibreOffice" or some such. It can be an ice breaker for small
meetup groups, or the first 3 pages to presentations by others.
So, what do you say - shall we get the first 2 shared presentations into
the LibreOffice Presentation Library...
Hi Drew. Thanks for the answer.
I don't think that this would work at the level that I was speaking of.
I really hadn't thought of it for the students at the
elementary/secondary levels. As far as repetitive events, as educators,
we use these as tools to solidify student abilities (not knowledge) in
performing tasks. For example, there could be template on setting up the
form of a short story, but this would defeat the purpose of the exercise
in having the student identifying the principal parts and working within
these parameters. In my opinion, at this level, we would want to present
to groups of teachers.
I see templates as being more useful in Academia where setting formats
are of little concern from the point of view of student assessment. The
students are expected to be experienced in many abilities and the focus
is mostly on knowledge. (Perhaps not as much at the College level where,
in Canada, the focus is still in a small way built on student abilities
but in large part knowledge.)
Templates, in my opinion, are really useful in different domains of
which too many. I would imagine that if there were a "LibO Template
Team" that we would want to encourage "templaters" who would be
interested in the larger and more conventional domains such as
"business"; "legal"; "music"; "cooking"; "education"; "academia" etc.
Under these domains there would be a breakdown to smaller components of
that particular domain.
I would rather concentrate on starting with very passionate individuals
who are deeply active in a particular domain and its inner workings and
convince them to try templating with, at first, mentoring. Once this
person is able to template, I think that we would find that she/he would
have had conferenced with people like her/him and had more individuals
interested in joining. These individuals are always in search of
perfecting their work habits.
Its a case of finding the right individuals, light the fuse, mentoring
and seeing them work and connect with others like them.
