Real Voices From OLPC Afghanistan XO Laptop Users


Are you tired of over-edited videos of One Laptop Per Child where the real voices of XO laptop users are muted for the English voice over? Then you're going to love this video from OLPC Afghanistan:

Listen as XO users talk about their experiences with the technology and how its impacting their lives - in their own voices. My favorite is the Arabic subtitles for the lone English speaker on the video. A nice touch that tells you this video is made for a whole other audience than you.

Always nice to see more positive stories about Afghanistan than the media normally carries. We made that video for the deployment ceremony for schools in Kabul.

PS: Actually the language in use in the video is Dari (Afghan Persian)...
