have you done OLPC research?

Postby arisam » Wed Jul 08, 2009 5:42 am

Hello fellow OLPC users,

We are a non-profit sustainable development foundation running the OLPC project in the north of Thailand.

We have 20 XO' s which are being used by children in our primary grade 6 level. This is the second year in which we are using the XO laptops. During the first pilot year, we observed a great improvement in the students desire to learn and the pure enjoyment of having a tool to learn with.

The donor that provided the laptops to our project would like to see some kind of research-based outcomes related to the impact on students' learning.

We are looking to measure the social, emotional, and academic competences which the XO laptops develop.

We have searched the website and the OLPC community but have not managed to find a template for such measurements.

We would be grateful if you could share any kind of work that has been done on this area.

Yours sincerely,
Arisa Manawapat
Education development coordinator
