Video recording of the OLPC in South America discussion at The World Bank


In early September The World Bank organized a discussion about the status quo of One Laptop per Child in South America. It was mostly based around the observations I made during the 6 1/2 weeks I spent traveling through Uruguay, Paraguay, and Peru. Additionally Wayan as well The World Bank's Sr. Education Economist Cristian Aedo shared their thoughts on what is going on in these countries. Towards the end we opened the talk to comments and questions from the audience which resulted in some very interesting insights.

You can find the recording of the talk embedded below. Please note that the whole thing starts at around 9min and 15 sec and that the slides I showed are available for download. As always I look forward to your thoughts and questions in the comments section or else you can also contact me via e-mail at
