I agree that we should do a better job of promoting classroom sessions
by LoCo teams (especially in other languages). A search with alis
turns up several other LoCo classroom channels. It would probably be
useful to have a list of these channels (along with information on
scheduling a class in one of the channels) on the main Classroom wiki
page. It might also be interesting to have a day where we try and get
as many different LoCos as possible to give a session in
#ubuntu-classroom in as many different languages as possible. This
would allow the rest of the community to see that LoCos are organizing
sessions and that they can be done in any language. It would also move
the task of organizing the day from the individual LoCo teams to the
Classroom Management team, allowing the LoCos to focus on preparing a
session to present.
