Emer Beamer [15] Educator and designer, RnD at Butterfly Works, We have developed an e-learning program called Learning about Living for young Nigerians together with many Nigerian ngos and the ministry of education. We have made the program suitable for the OLPC and have an XO here to test on. The program is an experiential life skills and aids prevention program. We have been working with OLPC Nigeria. We wish to take the program to Ethiopia and Rwanda if the OLPC takes off there. We want to explore the further experiential learning possibilities of OLPC. www.learningaboutliving.org, www.butterflyworks.org Amsterdam

Urso Wieske [21] IT Consultant Fantastic concept and initiative: OLPC!

The first time I heard about it (last year 2007) I became very enthousiastic. I am currently busy with e-learning programs. My interests:

  • the organizational aspects of an OLPC implementation for developing countries.
  • software development with respect to OLPC based on open source.

Engaging in OLPC!
