Gtk-bulb.pngNew pilot projects are starting all the globe, many people are interested in initiating, and there is a lot of information that wants to be exchanged. This page's focus is to provide a place for that exchange  :)


I think it would be useful to start listing pilots, both past, present and future(I'll start):


  • Collecting, focussing and exchanging of information and documentation
  • Setup of a basic information exchange infrastructure
  • Cross-connecting between pilot projects
  • Experience exchange
  • Give help on How to start a pilot
  • Pilot project related IRC meeting
  • Pilot laptops with ADULTS in developing countries

Working Group

A group of people starting to start work for these ideas might be the best way to get the basic organisation set up. The idea of this 'working group' is just emerging, and although the tasks for this wg are still unclear, it seems there certainly are things to do :) As often, volunteers are crucial for this process as well. To help getting started is for a limited timespan, and will make life easier for many people :)

  • Mailing List: Grassroots
  • IRC: #olpc-groups on freenode.net

Contributors and Volunteers

  • Marten for Leiden Pilot
  • Gregor: Organisation help, documentation
  • Mel: International grassroots documentation & support
  • User: Frits Hoff: OLPC NL, educational technologist, setting up educational pilots
  • add yourself :)
