I have decided to return to Rwanda (I already had the return side of my
ticket paid). A group in Stuttgart has provided 100 XO-1.5s to the St.
Jacob's school in Kigali. As a private school, they are not as directly
bound to Mineduc.
I was pleased to see a strong interest in the educational issues you
mention here - the first time at a Sugar/OLPC meeting. The immediate
focus is on establishing an online repository for the lesson plans and
content bundles that have already been created.
I spend three weeks in Haiti with Adam Holt, Nick Doiron and George Hunt
at École Shalom. We tried the schoolserver and Learn activity as ways to
deliver lessons requested by the teachers. While the results were
encouraging, they proved we are a long way from a production capability
to deliver courseware.
Christoph Derndorfer is coordinating the effort and I'll see that you
are included in the emails.
