The only difference I see is that in Peru we can't count on having a
schoolserver so the
client will have to cache some data.
Locally, for the previous study we collected journals, browser and error
Now user interaction events will be specifically recorded for research
An implementation of this functionality at the Sugar level (or X11+dbus)
will facilitate research on use and metrics for improvement of the
It would be wonderful if researchers could agree on what metrics we
would require to
measure. I'm proposing from our previous experience to begin with
Activity Focus / unfocus
as well as start/stop as a reference.
I have been following OLPC-AU's process and consider your experience a
the Puno startup deployment.
I am cc'ing Julián Cristia who is an economist working with the IADB and
one of the
authors of quite an extensive Experimental Assessment of OLPC Peru .
Also cc'ing the Puno team.
