Last year, Uruguay published Plan Ceibal, the Book (with Prentice-Hall), describing the world’s first national-scale implementation of one laptop for every child. This month they released an amazing video looking back on the first four years of the project: ”Much more than a computer“.
The 15-minute video ranges from what students work on in school, outside, and at home, and how the teaching community thinks about the classroom now. It is shot mainly outside, emphasizing working with nature and laptops as a part of everyday life. There is a lot of student work with multimedia in the background. And they share the view of this work from Ceibal as institution – what the program means for supporting schools across the country, and what it means for the influence of schools in their communities.
