Hi everyone,

We've posted a new video from our Haiti pilot, showing the day we  
gave the children their laptops:


We've also posted photos of each of the children with their new  
laptops.  Thanks again to the kind people who donated their XOs:


In other news, we're starting from scratch with our Squeaky Tales  
courseware with what we've learned from our St John pilot so far.   A  
new series of thirty videos featuring Etoys will be made, along with  
our new textbook.   The Haitian pilot will be the first to use the  
new courseware, teaching three hours each week for ten weeks.  It's  
scheduled to end before June 1st.  Hopefully the full courseware will  
be done by July 1st.

If you have enjoyed our tutorials or movies, and believe in what  
we're doing, please consider donating on our website.  We're running  
near the end of our budget and will likely have to cut corners on our  
upcoming full-length documentary and courseware.  Both will be made  
freely available to the world, so helping us now helps everyone  
later, not just Caribbean children.  Every little bit helps.  To see  
a sample of our old courseware, click "tutorials".

If you can't give money, click "contact" and say hello anyway!
