OLPC kicks off from Kabjisa
Posted by: Justina Spencer
The one laptop per child (OLPC) training project conducted at a community school in Kabjisa, Thimphu ended yesterday.

The five-day training was conducted by volunteers of OLPC (Asia-Pacific) to familiarise teachers and students of Kuzhungchen community primary school with the XO laptop computer, previously known as the $100 laptop.

“Our team is impressed by the attitude and reception of this concept,” said OLPC (Asia-Pacific) president, Anthony Wong. The OLPC president, who was also one of the five trainers, said that, despite the short duration of the training, both teachers and students had picked up the basics of the XO remarkably fast. “One student is already quite good at animating,” said Wong.
