I have chosen to shadow the Nicolas Negroponte, the founder of the charity called One Laptop Per Child
Chairman, OLPC Foundation
Nicholas Negroponte is founder and chairman of the One Laptop per Child
OLPC's Mission Statement: To create educational opportunities for the world's poorest children by providing each child with a rugged, low-cost,
low-power, connected laptop with content and software designed for
collaborative, joyful, self-empowered learning. When children have
access to this type of tool they get engaged in their own education.
They learn, share, create, and collaborate. They become connected to
each other, to the world and to a brighter future.
A real world laptop for real world change. The XO laptop.
Many years and an infinite amount of sweat equity went into the creation of
the XO laptop. Designed collaboratively by experts from academia and
industry, the XO is the product of the very best thinking about
technology and learning. It was designed with the real world in mind,
considering everything from extreme environmental conditions such as
high heat and humidity, to technological issues such as local language
support. As a result, the XO laptop is extremely durable, brilliantly
functional, energy-efficient, responsive, and fun. Come take a look.
