Can educators plz help Geraldine (volunteer liaison to publishers
worldwide, doing a fantastic job) focus her search below on what
content/e-book/subjects Haitian kids need most on OLPC's XO Laptops
running the Sugar Learning Platform?
Please reply to olpc-haiti at lists.laptop.org and/or post directly here:
Adam / SJ,
Thank you for this vital piece of information. I will be sure to include this from now on in my dealings with authors/publishers of Kreyol language educational content when appropriate. Can you help me narrow my search by specifying the type of content/subjects I should be focusing on.
So far on my list:
* age range 6-10
* educational material in Kreyol (does that include content religious in nature?); public domain (jackpot!), licensed content (next best, and mostly likely the case)
* audio/video matching above criteria
* anything else?
Let me know.
