My School, My Community, My Laptop - A Gorgeous Video About OLPC in South Africa


Resumen en español al final del artículo

Earlier this week SJ Klein (OLPC Foundation's Director of Outreach) blogged about a gorgeous video focused on an OLPC project in South Africa. In it the filmmaker Chiara Frisone documented the OLPC project taking place as part of the Kliptown Youth Program (KYP). Thanks to the support of an American family the first 100 XOs were brought to the project in early 2008 and since then the project has been expanded to 300 laptops.

The 10min video gives an overview of KYP and how the XOs are used at the project and it really is well worth watching.

If you're interested in learning more about the various other OLPC efforts which are going on in South Africa then I would recommend you to take a look at this recently published OLPC country case study.

Resumen en español: Este video documenta un proyecto con 300 XOs que forma una parte de un esfuerzo amplio del la organización Kliptown Youth Program (Kliptown Programa de Jóvenes) en Sudáfrica.
