Tue Aug 23 15:09:52 EDT 2011
A quite unbelievable group of OLPC social entrepreneurs and volunteers
working in Kenya, Haiti, South American, Central America (and Canada!)
have clustered around Toronto and Southern Ontario in recent years, and
are now coming together to discuss the very latest around all 3
"current" generations of laptops (XO-1, XO-1.5 and XO-1.75).
And of course the latest insider rumors on the upcoming XO-3 tablet!
What an important time for Canada's Best to kick back and reflect on
what's really emerging from our almost-4-year-effort now, providing free
and open software making exploratory learning happen. Among the world's
poorest chidren, inside schools and far beyond -- across so many
nations, one kid at a time... SAVE THE DATE SUNDAY SEPT 18!
All are most welcome to join us if you reply -- that means everyone,
Intl Development specialists, curriculum experts, and...teachers into
technology especially!/ We just ask you to RSVP for the address of the
private garden and farmhouse where this will be hosted, thanks =)/
