>I’ve mentioned to you that Rich Rice at Texas Tech University has been using XO laptops for outreach >with k-12 students, and recently, he and his graduate students completed a project with the Science >Spectrum in Lubbock, TX. Science Spectrum is the local science museum. As you can see from the >following movie, they developed some innovative activities and documented their work with children who >stopped by the Science Spectrum. They’ve had quite a bit of success using the drawing and >chat .software, among others.
>Rich is also a member of the Computers and Writing community and is interested in exploring other >ways that C&W can do outreach with k-12 schools using the XO and the Sugar platform. I’ve copied him >on this message, so we can continue to talk about options for immediate and long-term projects like >working with the National Writing Project.
