Re: [OLPCVietnam] Re: Vung Vieng Village XO Project


(Replying to list)

I'll be back in Hanoi in late October. Sign me up for a trip (bike or otherwise) to fishing village.  Let us
see if we can address the problem of transient teachers. Perhaps the local community members (open source
community, volunteers) engaging with the project regularly might solve this issue.

Am trying to rope in OLPC community, teachers, Hardware hackers and Open Source developers to take more
 interest in the project here in Viet Nam.

Greetings. I was told by an Australian friend that she saw some little green laptops when she was visiting there! This is good visibility. Nevertheless there are need to get a platform for people involved in small or big educational projects in Asia to come together - share failure lessons or best practices.

With this in mind [email protected], Malaysia is scheduled for on Nov 16-18, 2013. If people come some wonderful things may happening in this region of the world. The website link is below and it is a free event. Just register, let us know you are coming, showup and participate - but travel, accomodation food, etc expenses must be participants' responsibilitiy.


A community sprint to improve a community edition of the OLPC XS school server will also be part of the program in planning.

Do spread the word around and hope to see some of you.
