OLPC India Experience

Indian Children exploring OLPC XO laptop

OLPC learning consultant Carla Gomez Monroy writes about the OLPC experience in Khairat school, Maharashtra (India). The site for OLPC pilot project in India.

At the entrance, there was a black dog taking a rest. Beside the dog was Rajiv, in first standard, working on his XO while it was charging, plugged to the outlet on the wall. At the foot of the wall, on a long mat, there were some XOs, being charged.

On the other side of the door, sitting on long, thin mats on the floor, there was a small group of girls and boys working on eToys. Some were trying out all the sample projects while others were making their own.
