CMU’s iSTEP program makes English literacy apps for the XO

Carnegie Mellon University’s iSTEP internship program is working with Plan Ceibal in Uruguay to develop and deploy English literacy activities and web apps that work well on XOs, for children of all ages. They are also creating tools to help teachers customize these apps. The interns have been living and working in Montevideo while doing this work.

This is just the latest in a series of projects by CMU students to support OLPC initiatives around the world.

  1. We are also trying to initiate a policy of a tablet PC for every school child here in Thailand. One of the chief arguments against the policy is that there are no E-books or learning software in Thai. I maintain there will be shortly once it is certain the tablet will , indeed, be distributed. We need all the help we can get to support this policy. Obviously, One Laptop Per Child has made tremendous advances.
