As the Corps move forward, we’ve asked each team to post blogs on a variety of key themes revolved around the deployment process. In the coming weeks we will highlight a few teams who will cover basic issues and statistics ranging from demographics, health, and education infrastructure to the local culture’s perspective on OLPC’s 5 principles and what the children do when they take the XO home.
Today’s post focuses on the diversity of Corps communities and learning environments teams are working in. The Corps deployments range from urban to rural, 1:1 to 1:3, 6 years old to 12 years old, and high to low student-to-teacher ratio. We share updates from Uganda, Senegal, and South Africa.
