What is a Curriculum Jam? A Curriculum Jam is an OLPC Jam devoted towards producing curricula or more generally, learning activities - a complete experience that a student or a group of students can do either alone or with a teacher in order to learn something.

OLPC is organizing a Curriculum Jam in Manila, scheduled for the first weekend of October (5-7). We'll be working with teachers around the world who are running Curriculum Jams in their countries at the same time. We'll be creating learning activities - developing miniature classes (45-minute lessons) to teach (anything we want) to local schoolchildren, who will actually take the classes on Sunday afternoon and give feedback on how to make the learning experiences better. After the Jam, we'll upload all the lessons plans we've generated to the internet and release them under an open content license so that other teachers around the world can do the same thing with their classes.
Participation in the Jam is appreciated. To apply, click here.
What is a Jam?
An OLPC Jam is a content creation crunch that gets participants from idea to reality in just a few days. By the end of the Jam, you'll have something finished to test with local schoolchildren (who serve as judges for the event). It's a great way to get started developing for OLPC.
