Education makes a long lasting difference

Huge potential for the XO everywhere

It closes the gap between Western countries and developing countries (from ‘stone’ age to modern age)

It gives the children a choice (e.g. Russia, Bangalore)

It has impact on the child, but also on environment of child (brothers, sisters, parents)

XO used for personal development, but has also value for environment (internet information available)

Little money, big impact

OLPC Research organization No business processes in place (ordering/shipping) Focus on big numbers Price mechanism unclear Limited support Single distribution channel GiveMany program No or limited technical support and warranty Knowlegde sharing platform can be improved Functional roadmap can be improved St. Meters Maken voor Millennium, KvK 09179631, rek.nr. 322811775, Sperwerstraat 51, 6541 SB, Nijmegen, The Netherlands

Learnings 1 XO great combination software and hardware; unique of its kind. XO is positioned for 6 – 10 years old, older ages are going to use the regular PC Introduction of the XO at the different deployments usually starts at 6 years old. Children learn computer capabilities and don’t care if it’s Microsoft or not. Every deployment is still in an embryonic stage. What the real effects are, are still unclear IT is usually seen as a separate course and is not integrated in the lessons yet. XO and internet really helps in the distribution of schoolbooks to remote areas and helps the children (no need to carry heavy school bags in monsoon) Circle of Life (education, food, healthcare, family); www.parikrmafoundation.org Calculate the real costs (multiply the XO costs by a x factor) St. Meters Maken voor Millennium, KvK 09179631, rek.nr. 322811775, Sperwerstraat 51, 6541 SB, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
