    very good…

  2. I find the whole educational landscape too scattered.
    Too many people working in their own little corner.
    Wouldn’t it make sense to bring a lot more resources to the UNESCO and bring the coordination for education there?
    Imagine you’re a teacher in a refugee camp in Syria. Wouldn’t it be logical that they could go to the unesco website, e.g. section learn english and you get immediate access to the best English language toolkit there is?
    We’re from the One Laptopschool Per Child open community project making sure humanity has someone building a rugged solar powered laptop for kids aged 5-15 yrs. It is now at 27 euro/child.year including portable PV panel the kids take home. It can hold about 500 eBook. You know any cheaper way just to get the books to the kids?

    Status:
    1. All kids in Uruguay have an OLPC
    2. All kids in several island nations have an OLPC
    3. Just about all kids in Peru have an OLPC
    4. Just about all kids in Rwanda have an OLPC
    5. Every month about 10.000 OLPC laptops are deployed. Mainly in Australia and Latin America
    6. In Uruguay, there’s not enough English language teachers, so kids took out their OLPC laptops and reached out to people that do speak English and want to teach them. They now get lessons from Philippinos, North American’s, etc.
    7. In Uruguay, kids hacked their OLPC and turned it into a robot. Google: OLPC butia
    8. Kids using the OLPC are printed on the Rwanda 500 Francs Note
    A good place to join in:
