Community Invitation: Washington, DC – Sept 6-11, 2009
During the second week of September, the OLPC/Sugar Community will be coming together in Washington, DC to create a Mini-Deployment Guide. Â Tentatively named “Class Acts,” this succinct book will provide technically curious teachers with plans and suggestions for jumpstarting 21st century learning in their schools using XO Laptops. Â It’ll be an illustrated document, short and professional, focusing on success stories from smaller rollouts around the world. Â This powerful idea came together from Support Gang community volunteers wanting to share our greatest classroom/support success stories, into one action-provoking document. Let us spur others to build their own success stories – with innovative solutions in turn driving more grassroots innovation!
Creating this Mini-Deployment Guide will be a massive and euphoric undertaking. We invite all those who want to take part in this Community Book Sprint to email holt @ laptop.org or grassroots @ lists.laptop.org, explaining how your bookwriting talents will catalyze teachers worldwide! Â Business hours September 6th to 11thÂ will be dedicated to intensive development of the guide, with evenings reserved for socializing and exploring. Â Evening events will be open to non-contributors as well, please feel free to join us for some very memorable OLPC/Sugar Learning Environment Fun!
