Mission House Basic

Peering into Journal data

Our pilot sites in Jamaica run on the OLPC XS School Server. The XS provides backup services for all the different XO laptops registered to itself. The backup stores the Journal of each laptop. For those who are unfamiliar with the Journal, it is an application that acts as a filing system, except that it does not use the metaphor of files and folders.

Mission House Basic School joins the OLPC world

The Mona School of Business and Management (MSBM) launched its third "One Laptop Per Child" (OLPC) project on May 16, 2013. Since its inception in 2011, the project has provided over 100 laptops to select schools. This year 20 XO laptops were distributed to the Mission House Basic School in Gordon Town, to be complemented by on-going teacher, parent and student training. This initiative is sponsored by the Western Union Foundation, and implemented by MSBM and People's Action for Community Transformation (PACT), with Internet support provided by LIME.
