Hi, Dave

Everything possible.

For a simple example. If Uruguay is allowing learners to take laptops 
home; how is charging handled? In Rwanda, we discovered that
few homes had electricity. This would mean laptops taken home would be 
returned with empty batteries. The school is set up to charge the
laptops in charging racks. Charging them in class time would mean 
running power strips all over the floor of the classroom potentially 
endangering students and the laptops (dragged to the floor). In Nepal, 
wear and tear on the XOs proved too expensive so laptops now stay in the 
school. After school opportunities are a good alternative, except in 
many schools students walk several miles to and from school. This means 
they can not stay back for after school activities. In schools with two 
shifts there would lots of time for 'before' or 'after' school 
activities. However, the schools do not have classroom space beyond for 
the active classes.

Every deployment I have encountered is different, information about them 
would be invaluable and would give us an opportunity to provide more 
effective support. I think the first priority is to find the deployments 
and identify a contact who could provide us with good current information.
