I have also been waiting patiently (well, not really very patiently) for some news about Sugar coming to Android. So far, I have heard nothing new. So I guess it isn't too late to throw my educator's opinion into the mix...One of the things that makes Sugar the ideal learning platform for children (and youth) is the wonderful compatibility of so many of the Activities ... both from Activity to Activity and from student to student. This facilitates the sort of learning we are all hoping to see more of... creative problem solving, project based learning and cooperative learning. Without this ability to integrate parts of projects, it would just be another collection of apps.Thanks for "listening"Caryl

Subject: [IAEP] Sugar on Android via HTML5

So, I've been mulling this for some time now. At work we are looking into using FireFoxOS as a platform for HTML5 apps in some of our courses. It's exciting that there is some momentum on the HTML5 activities in Sugar. 

What I'm unsure about is the implementation. Outside of the classic Sugar shell and activities (say, on a XO), are we envisioning the whole Sugar experience on Android, UI and all, or are we looking to have Sugar activities running on Android (with appropriate mods) but as yet another app?

Has there been any conversation on this that I missed?
