Australia will make an effort to be there remotely. I'm likely running a
workshop at the beginning of April, so I may not be able to attend the
whole sprint. However, we'll contribute in any way we possibly can.
Hopefully by then we will have revised a fair amount of our own
documentation as we need it ready to release the new Australian build, so
we can certainly send that along. We may also have a bunch of lesson plans
that could be rewritten/ worked on for an international audience.

I'm not sure what activities are a priority internationally, but apart
from the core that is mentioned on the Wiki, our teachers use the
following activities a fair amount and might therefore benefit from
- Tuxpaint
- Memorize
- Labyrinth
- Jigsaw puzzle
- Cartoon Builder
- Stop watch
- Distance

I would like to re-kindle the idea of screencasts. Here it is briefly:
The idea was to script a handful of basic show-and-tell in any activity
(start, work through the activity, highlight the various toolbar items,
and close with a Journal reflection). Record using a VM or recordmydesktop
directly in Sugar, then make the OGV available someplace. The OGV can be
split into audio and video, so we can redo the audio in different
languages and do localization. We start with a few (six maybe?) and let
others jump in.
