Mr. Steves Exploratorium

Mr. Steves Exploratorium.

Mr. Steve got a shout-out on the It’s – An – Education – Project listserv, so I decided I had better add him to our posts. Mr. Steve encouraged our project early one–he one of the many generous Sugar XO Etoys mentors we have exchanged emails with.

    Etoys mentor is great. We could use all the help we can get with the Kibwezi, Kenya, OLPC begun (renegade) 2008 July and expanded 2009 July and 2011 summer(s).

    Bob, can you say more about what kind of help you need? We are more curriculum design and implementation than hardware software. I’d love to get back to Kenya, and I have a colleague coming there in the spring semester.

    The hundred OLPC units there are obviously (to me) well used in the classrooms – Standards 1 to 8. Probably least in the highest due to the pressure of National Exams. In summer 2011 we reflashed with what then was the latest (something like 0.82) and now a newer iteration is available here in U.S. which I have done to about half a dozen G1 G1 we have here for after-school tutoring. Curriculum coordination is (in my view) the weak part. When we are there (just one month) we also have the vocational school students give a try at the systems but time is severely limited for us.
