One Laptop Per Child – OLPC – continues to be a world leader in the development of innovative educational technologies. OLPC, founded in 2005, was created to design, manufacture and distribute educational devices to children around the world. In a few short years, OLPC made this vision a reality. To date, OLPC has distributed more than 2.8 million educational devices to children around the world.
Given the increased attention on the use of technology in education in the United States and abroad, OLPC has continued to act as a leader in the development of cutting edge educational technologies for children. This fall, OLPC announced an exciting and innovative device for use by children in and out of the classroom, theÂ XO Tablet.
Children all have dreams about what they want to be when they grow up. These dreams inspire children to learn about the world. The XO Tablet encourages children to explore their dreams, as it comes with more than 200 educational Android applications and 200 books specially selected by the team at OLPC. Each dream on the XO Tablet has been selected to foster skills in areas such as math, science, language arts, music, programming and art.
