Last Friday I was talking with one of the community elders who told me he didn't like computers. A few minutes later one of the kids showed him an XO running Azucar. "Oh, I like this", he said with a smile.
Since none of the kids can type, I plan to take a look at the typing activities available to see what they can do. I'll report back later. The "Hablar" (Talk) activity was a big hit, and several eyes lit up when we looked up "vaca" (cow) on Wikipedia using the Browse activity.
Oh, a summary of the working condition of the 30 laptops sent for this project is as follows:
- 22 in perfect working order
- 1 with a defective touchpad
- 1 with defective video
- 1 with defective networking
