[IAEP] [Olpc-open] Healthcare - Potential Opportunity

I'm not sure why, but I not like much Etoys (with all my respect to my namesake Alan Kay :-) 
I prefer a pure-python activity. For example, a first activity could be: "I know the Eye" and use asimilar image to this: (search: eye anatomy)
External: (muscleds, etc)
And internal:
The first problem is obtain a good image (CC creative commons or similiar free license).

If you have the materials (images, test, knowledge, etc.) I would be happy to work with you to create some materials in Etoys that could help educate folks about the eye and more importantly detect vision problems and provide suggestions and resources on how to deal with them.  If you send me some materials I can put something together in Etoys fairly quickly.  It would be available to all OLPC XO's and because its Etoys, it can also run on Windows, Mac and Linux (with no code changes).  If it works for both of us, we could put together some quick prototypes to help build a "more robust case".

I would suggest taking a look at the accumulated notes and links on these pages.
