Sandra (and others)
Our partnership is with a vocational (polytechnic) school originally teaching two year programs for folks not going on to what Americans call high school: carpentry and joinery, masonry, tailoring and dressmaking, added secretarial college (including conventional computer lab), metalworking (welding and such), trying to add automotive. The local people of Kenya have also constructed year by year grades (standard) one through eight (primary school) which would be our focus with these systems.
Due to unrest in Kenya, we have pared down our group from 24 or 25 this year to eight, re-scheduling the main group for summer of 2009. Instead of four weeks, we are looking to be there about three weeks.
The six OLPC XO units we have we did "pull out of our own pocket" as one have of the G1G1 offer. Friday evening we are meeting to take a look at starting to prepare for what we might do with standards 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 while in Kenya in July. Sorry I have been out of the loop for awhile.
