OLPC Erie

About

The Erie Interest Group is a way for people in the Erie area and surrounding locations to talk about and work together on OLPC. We aren't necessarily interested just in trying to bring OLPC into classrooms in Erie (although we generally think it's a wonderful idea) we're also interested in volunteering/contributing to the project.

OLPC Erie IS

  1. a nucleation point for exchange between local groups, towards the OLPC Boston office and back, and with other groups worldwide
  2. helping in organizing XOs for the local groups
  3. supporting and cherishing the autonomy of local groups
  4. focusing on rough consensus, grassroots involvement, and working projects

OLPC Erie IS NOT

  1. going to do a local pilot in your school (although we'll encourage and support you if you want to do one yourself)
  2. going to tell you what you are and aren't allowed to do (although we're always up for idea-bouncing and brainstorms)

Contact and chapters

If there's enough demand, we'll set up a mailing list. If you'd like to have an Erie-OLPC mailing list, post a link to your contact info (wiki userpages work) below - the minimum number for starting a list is 10 recent requests.
