Grovo.com, a new online training site, is running a campaign to help generation XO around the world. They are donating $1 for every person who signs up (the service is free) between now until December 31st. They are also thinking about how to help new XO users learn to use the Internet in different ways. On January 2, Grovo will announce the results on their blog.
Visit www.grovo.com/olpc to get started, and if you like what they’re doing, help spread the word! There are a number of cool mentor/tutor projects in the works, and I expect to see a flowering of results and active mentor networks in the coming year.
Here’s some background on Grovo from one of their early case studies. I can’t wait to see is a series of tutorials like this on how to use, say, the most popular sites in a very different online stting, like Nigeria or Korea (where I have a hard time figuring out the social and procedural norms).
