I’m pleased to announce…
For Immediate Release 14 October, 2008
One Laptop Per Child Open Day
Computing Assistance Support & Education (CASE) will be hosting Canberra’s first One Laptop Per Child Open Day Monday 27 October 2008 3.00pm at Volunteering ACT 55 Chandler Street (corner of Chandler and Cameron Streets) Belconnen.
Pia Waugh, open source software expert and One Laptop Per Child community member, will be speaking about the success of the OLPC project around the world and the opportunities it provides for educational projects in our region.
Following the event CASE will hold it’s 10th Annual General Meeting for members.
Come and play with the OLPC XO devices on display, and find out how this unique technology is being used in educational projects around the world.
I’ll be giving a presentation on the technical aspects of the XO itself (nothing too complicated), and then we will be on hand to demonstrate some of the features and answer questions as best we can. Pia will be talking at the end (at 5, is the plan). I’ll be covering the event from this blog, so be sure to check back here!
