Learning (also) with computers – 2nd open call
Since September 2009, two Greek schools, the Sminthi High School and the 2nd Experimental High School of Florina, are using the OLPC XO-1 student laptops in one of their classrooms. In continuation of this pilot program, Re-public and the Greek Free/Open Source Software Company (ΕΕL/LΑΚ) extend an open call for the dispatch and use of 500 more OLPC XO-1 student laptops to Greek schools.
We invite all teachers and/or schools interested to participate in the program to contact us at email@example.com.
For a more detailed presentation of the program, two workshops will take place on November 28th in Thessaloniki and on December 5th in Athens. The dispatch of student laptops will start in February 2010.
The conditions for the participation in the pilot program are as follows:
- At least one of the teachers, the school’s administration, the pupils and the parents’ association must have given their consent to use the laptops in the educational process.
- The consent of the abovementioned parties that the student laptops will belong to the students during the course of the school year.
- Collaboration with the team of Re-public and the Greek Free/Open Source Software Company for the development of educational material inside and outside the classroom.
The program will primarily target in schools of sensitive regions, that are either economically disadvantaged, or/and regions where Greek is not the mother tongue of the majority of the students.
