Image:Olpclogo.gif Cambridge Workshop: September 17-19, 2008

On September 17-19, 2008, attendees from around the world, mainly Colombia, Paraguay, Puerto Rico and Mexico, attended a learning workshop at OLPC headquarters. Participants walked away with a better understanding of the XO laptop, learning and the goals of One Laptop per Child.


Overview:

The One Laptop per Child (OLPC) Regional Workshop is designed to provide participants with a pragmatic understanding of laptops for learning at both the micro and macro scales. The micro scale involves how children learn and how children use laptops for learning in productive, joyful ways. The macro scale involves how to create high-quality learning environments for everyone, not just a few. This workshop is part of a larger series of events both at OLPC and in other countries and localities aimed at building local capacity and forming an international network of organizations to deploy one laptop per child.

The workshop will be practical and hands-on, yet it is not a mere technical training. Participants will become familiar with laptops for learning and will use the concrete experience as a basis for reflection upon the learning process. Participants will also learn from the examples of countries already adopting one laptop per child at national levels so as to plan how to best implement in their own countries. Participants will also get to know each other to form their own learning network so as to enable richer development in each country and the region.

Discussion

Planning and Deployment workshop for core team more comprehensive planning documentation guides for getting started - send this to the team what wiki pages you want to go to for starters case studies whats needed for the members ofthe core team - specific job description - regional , federal and local levels - how do you transfer th knowlee knowledge level of self - certification - how you know you are ready to work - example- Geek Corps online training - form people who have already gone through the process feedback - share your experience - you are part of the process and the community

____________________________

How do we sell the XO do you need a curriculum in order to learn? XO is not the only tool in the education suggestions: teachers can share lesson plans/videos DoE should visit a pilot to see the activites should have a goal and be a challenge have a model country place to teachers experiences - learn more about XO in classroom - a forum for teachers home use integrate to the community and family life (CEIBAL book)

_____________________________

core issue - need for social network - one place where everyone can come together university involvement- how does the the university - incentives in order to help be a community that helps to support OLPC - research credits, etc, ground support using wiki or facebook model for the creating network - reach teachers students tech suport - topic links, lesson plans, projects, archive of ideas, homework, -students - network with others, activities/games - blogs, sharing, etc indicators for Evaluation - # of users, exam scores, attritions rates, survey (teacher /student)

Asia Workshop


The OLPC Asia Workshop, the first of several OLPC regional workshops, was held in Bangkok, Thailand at King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT) from July 28, 2008-August 1, 2008. Participants came from across Asia and the South Pacific to participate; learn more about the future of learning, technology and, of course, the XO laptop.


The primary objectives of this workshop were to:

  • a progressive deepening understanding of the learning process;
  • how the XO laptop enables more effective learning through construction, expression, and collaboration;
  • the roles of technology in general and one-to-one environments in particular;
  • the pragmatics of children, laptops and learning;
  • introduction to and participation in a regional and international network of practitioners of 1:1 environments
