Building a smarter computing culture in Fargo, ND

Notes for the Sugar developers

Chris made a typically thorough and visually pleasing post–I just have some points, items we have talked about / are concerned about with Sugar on a Stick.

1. USB capacity. Madison Elementary used a 4GB USB drive, but after imagining, the stick had less than 500 MBs left for expansion.
2. USB reliability. We aren’t optimistic about the sticks lasting for a whole semester, let alone a whole year.
3. Neighborhood issues: who are all those people? And how did they manage to start a chat session with our 4th graders?
4. Groups: can a teacher easily establish a group at the start of a semester and have it be persistent? Can groups be quickly and easily reconfigured?

I don’t know what else to ask developers. Lots of questions about curriculum integration, activity application.
