Developing XO Best Practices Within a Rural School Community: While one laptop per child is ideal, we have 80 laptops and 800 children. Determining best practices for a community requires mentoring, some practical experience with technology, ingenuity, and a lot of active listening on the part of everyone involved. To ensure they don't go unused, used inappropriately, or used only by a select few, protocols must be developed collaboratively. Join us for a discussion around questions to ask prior to and while unrolling an XO deployment.

Peer to Peer Learning: Peer to Peer learning as an opportunity for classroom facilitation, self-esteem building, positive socialization and much more: "Peer to peer learning has proven to be a positive force in OLPC projects worldwide. When a collaborative environment of sharing and problem solving is fostered within and across classrooms, teachers receive the benefit of reduced pressure to always "have the answer" and the opportunity to learn a great deal from their students. Both the Nicaraguan experience and participant perspectives will be explored." 

(Jennifer Martino, Barbara Barry)
