[OLPC-SF] New user support request

Hello, I am a high school teacher and new user to the OLPC and will be  
helping to lead a student project in Keur Sadaro, Senegal in June  
(short notice, I know). There were 25 OLPCs brought over last year  
that are not in use but will be this summer when the wireless mesh  
network is completed. We will bring an additional 20 or so OLPCs.

Due to a pre-scheduled vacation, I am unable to attend the April SF  
meeting, but I was wondering if there is anyone with time and energy  
to help me get started. While I am able to sort out the basics, I am  
finding that most of the Activities do not have instructions, or the  
instructions explain what the program does but not how to do it. One  
even says, "If you are computer savvy and play with it long enough,  
you can figure it out." This won't be useful in Senegal.

More specifically:
1. Are there actual instructions for some of the more complex  
2. Are there lesson plans/unit plans?
3. I have downloaded the user manual - is it available in other  
4. Are there new user training sessions offered other than the one  
Saturday each month?

Thank you!
Jenny Nauss
