    All participants for this workshop are elementary students in the sixth grade.

    For the workshop, We used Edubuntu Linux distribution as the operating system.
    Before starting the workshop, the facilitator asked them about what they already known about a computer.
    Then, She explained about what is operating system.
    She gave an example of a human that a human will be a dead body if there is no soul,,,so as the computer, it will not work if there is no operating system installed.

    and she explained a bit about Linux and the Edubuntu. She gave another example,…. for example, all people has its own name because they are unique each other, in the same case,,each Linux distribution has its own name,..Why it is named Edubuntu,,,because it is specific for EDUcation purposes and it is a remastered product of UBUNTU…
