Now that I'm back in the USA, let's get people introduced to one another. I
think a good idea might be to first introduce ourselves and describe our
interests, then pair people up together (Etoys people with public health
people and such) to take on different units (I'm assuming at least the
majority of them will be based in Etoys so that teachers can edit them to
make them culturally relevant in various locations). Then we can get a
timeline going to see some of this stuff out.
So if you can just take a quick five minutes to *introduce yourself *and to
indicate what *particular interests *you have in terms of public health
projects, that'd be great!
I'm Beth and I'm the Outreach Coordinator for Waveplace
After doing a few laptop pilots using Etoys and OLPC's XO laptop, what I
realized was really missing was some public health curricula that kids could
use in our (and other) laptop programs around the world. I have my own
computer program running in São Tomé that has benefitted from the Waveplace
courseware but has also done a lot of development on its own. I've also
worked in Haiti and St. John with Waveplace.
Lots of interest in terms of public health, nothing in particular comes to
mind, though I do have experience with malaria and AIDS prevention
Excited to be working with all of you and hoping that we can get some great
PS Etoys Education Team-- I cc'ed you on this email in case any of you are
interested in joining us on the OLPC listserv, which is our home even though
it's technically a Waveplace project that we're doing. Let me know and I'd
be happy to add you, or sign up yourself to the OLPC list </> at least!
