Thank you for the translation and the abstract. These observations deal with 
what goes into teaching and with the perceptions/opinions of people around the 
learners. Is there anything in the report about its impact on motivation 
towards learning, thinking, expressing, writing, reading, reasoning etc. in 
the young learners? I realize it is too early in the cycle to arrive at any 
definite conclusion, but I am only seeking trends at this time.

Is there anything in the trends that reveal the unique contributions of an XO 
i.e. outcomes that would be difficult (uneconomical) to achieve without it?

Thanks .. Subbu
