World Of Kyeldon Project (first official Lifesign)

Dear all,

(sorry for my english, I am no native speaker)

About 11 years ago, I sat together with a small group of people and 
thought about a project which could unify most of the people today.

I knew: Everything will be much more interconnected than in any time of
Life before.

Just take the "prophet's harrassment" by danish people. Take Barrack 
Hussein Obama and his twitter and FaceBook voting victory. I could
tell 1000 examples of things like that.

Men are created equal... yes sure they are; but they do not behave 
like they were, and why are they doing and thinking so?

Many of this, comes straight from FEAR or stronger "ANGST!". 
Not knowing about the future, having not much money, bad issues 
in the past can coin behaviour.

My idea for this project should be like this: Create a network on which
everybody is allowed to participate (sorry all you rich and famous people).
Sharing and Caring are the little things which stabilize socities.

Create a network of strong representing individuals who are helping 
others to understand their world (existence). Sharing knowledge of math
to be able to develop once the cold fusion, sharing awareness, having 
respect for themselves as well for strangers.

Resources in Spanish for the XO and Sugar including Teacher Workshops

Hello Nancie,


Welcome to OLPC!  Here is are links to the teachers' manuals from Peru.  They are in Spanish, but excellent. It tells how to do almost everything you would want to do.

There are 3 parts totalling over 100 pages.


http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Sur#Per.C3.BA


They also have an excellent web site with a lot of links to interesting things:


http://www.perueduca.edu.pe/web/visitante/inicio


Mexico also has a lot of things on the web. Some of their screen shots may be from older versions of Sugar, but their manuals are excellent.


http://www.mochiladigitaltelmex.com.mx/olpc/index.php/Herramientas_pedagógicas


They have also done some excellent training sessions.  This link will take you to the page with links to their workshop lesson plans, participant guides, and a short "presentation." 


http://www.mochiladigitaltelmex.com.mx/olpc/index.php/Talleres_Mochila_Digital_Telme


They deal with far more than how to use the XO.  There is a lot of other important information too.  Probably the 2nd one is the most important as it deals with constructionism and collaborative learning.


Unfortunately, they are all in Spanish.  Here is a suggestion...find a friend who is fluent in Spanish and spend several hours perusing these teacher workshop resources.  Take copious notes. Then write your own workshop lesson plan.


Of course, your most useful resource in English will be the FLOSS manuals at:


http://en.flossmanuals.net/


The ones for OLPC are on the right-hand column.


I hope you will be able to use some of these resources in your project. We really need someone to dedicate some time to get them translated into other languages.
