We are grassroots[1], thus no big organization. We are currently a group of people, interested in the OLPC project, trying to find like-minded people with diverse expertises (software development, pedagogics, international relations, etc.) and backgrounds, to interconnect and accomplish projects together. Everybody who wants to contribute with his or her input of ideas and workpower, is welcome. We neither operate memberships nor a budget as an organization.

OLPC-NL To Do List - These are tasks we'd like to accomplish, in order to get OLPC NL started up and keep it running. Please have a look and see if you can help with any of the to-do's or add any to-do's that you think are important.

  1. University of Groningen, Netherlands, Department of Social and Organizational Psychology, Nina Hansen: (Dutch) research on the influence of social identity on emotions and behavior within and between groups.

Dr Nina Hansen and Prof. Tom Postmes from the University of Groningen are currently involved in research that systematically and longitudinally tracks individual children to study the educational, psychological, social and cultural impact of OLPC in their life.

One goal of OLPC is to improve the educational outcomes of students, so called primary (i.e., educational) consequences of ICTs. These educational outcomes are being assessed in this project. However, this research also examines secondary consequences: changes over time in self-concept (such as goals and expectations), social networks (also referred to as social capital), cultural values, beliefs and practices, as well as changes in social equality (e.g., with respect to gender). These ‘unintended’ changes in psychology, social networks, communities, and culture may occur when laptops open new communication opportunities.
