I’ve been involved in rolling out Australia’s first OLPC XO trial, which has been awesome! Although the details aren’t public knowledge yet I thought I’d post all the technical documentation (with permission) which I’m sure will help others! We have done what is I believe a world first in actually connecting up classrooms that are geographically dispersed with video and other collaborative activities for specialist education support of children in remote/rural areas. We are using this trial specifically for literacy education purposes as well as general classroom use of course.
All the documentation is here!
The full details will be available very soon, including a video of some of the children, teachers and implementers involved.
