Thoughts on teaching and learning from a third grade teacher in Seattle, WA, USA
Hey Mark,As an elementary school teacher, do you see these computers XO and viable 1-1 environment? Are you buying your own or getting some kind of funding? BTW... looking forward to another year of Earth Day Bag Project.
Jose, I've had 6 xo's for a while now, long story of generosity... The OS, a custom linux design just for the XO, is excellent. Maintaining, upgrading, troubleshooting, etc. is obviously on my own...At $50 or so a pop, I relied on making connections. Look for a new sponsor on the Earth Day Groceries Project :) Have a great weekend- Mark (still on the xo)
I just love the simplicity of the desktop - no distracting clutter, like a clear desk ready for any possibilities.
That's Xtra Ordinary?
Graham, I wish MY desktop was so tidy! Tom, it's a longish story that I hope to get out here soon, but my XO's have become little more than curiosities recently in my 3rd grade classroom. I can REALLY see my kids using them set up this way. It's like I just got a bunch more computers - that pretty much behave as our other computers. Will keep you posted on progress. - Mark
