OLPC Health has great potential for expanding the OLPC curriculum. The
Kasiisi Project in Uganda is interested in getting health content on their
laptops. We have a potential partner, StraightTalk -
http://www.straight-talk.or.ug/ - which has children's health information
in PDF format. Hopefully this can be translated for Haiti and other
In the HealthMap conference call, we also talked about collecting reports
and diagnosing health problems. eToys and Scratch are great ways for
students to discuss what they're learning, but we would need forms, mesh
networking, and a database for teachers to collect students' reports.
Those are best accomplished with a separate activity.
Fortunately, I have a BookReport activity which already uses these
methods. I'd like to make this into a HealthReport activity! The best
way for this to move forward would be to have a clear picture of who the
first users will be, and what information they want to collect. I've put
a few ideas and details on the wiki at
