* Which projects might you enjoy Mentoring?!
* Fast Review of the 3 latest (greatest!) HW/Project Proposals -- please
join us advocating for and/or reviewing shortcomings of these proposals:
1. OOo4Kids project (Open Office) - France
Requests 2 XO's over 5 months
Our objectives are, in a first time make Ooo4Kids work well on the XO,
then discover Sugar in order to sugarize Ooo4Kids. After this, we will
work on some optimisations with some other goals: make two improvements
of performances for Ooo4Kids on sugar and two new features on the user
interface (one per student).
2. UCSB's Cross-cultural learning activities - California
Requests 10 XO's over 24 months
1. We aim to create XO-based activities to integrate into the
California 3rd-grade curriculum (particularly, science, math and
language arts). The goal is to make the XO a continuous learning
resource for use throughout the mid-elementary school curriculum (as
opposed to the use of computers in a specific, time-restricted,
computer lab period).
2. We aim to use the XOs to establish and nurture an international
peer-exchange program between a California elementary school and an
African elementary school. The goal is to create awareness of the
children’s commonalities and differences, for example, in family
structure, school environment and curriculum, resources, recreational
interests and future aspirations.
3. New repair center in Innsbruck - Austria
Requests 10 XO's (broken OK) over 10 months
Repair XOs by the rules set up in
The user will communicate to my new Austrian phonenumber which will
follow soon and to emailaddress: AlpXO at unterhauser.name
I plan to be as fast as possible. The repairing part shouldn't be much
of a problem because I am experienced with computers (SW and HW). As for
the delivery I have no experience but hope to overcome that knowledge
As a first step will start locally (eastern part of Austria) and if that
works I will take care of the region in which the Munich and Bolzano
libraries are situated.
