PTA Meeting at August Town

Had the opportunity to attend the PTA meeting at August Town on Monday (Nov 22nd) and spoke to over 30 Parents about the OLPC project. There was a good deal of receptiveness and enthusiasm about the project. Some of the questions raised included:

1st Teacher training session - Providence

Had a good turnout for the 1st OLPC Teacher training at Providence on Monday Nov 22nd... Six teachers in attendance including the Principal and the 3 teachers for the Target Pre/Kindergarten 5 & 6-year-olds Kids. Also had 2 members of the Early Childhood Commission (ECC) in attendance. From the UWI team, Maurice, Craig and Brian. The session was primarily orientation with the XO and getting familiar with opening the computer, boot-up and navigating the Sugar UI. We looked at a few Sugar Activities and, as usual, Speak was a hit, as well as Memorize..
