OLPC Mongolia is pretty in pastel

OLPC Mongolia's national website has been steadily adding new information about their program, and their site looks beautiful. I need to get a proper translation of their blog, which often goes into extreme detail. They have charming walkthroughs for every core activity (here's WikipediaEN and Speak.

And they love to share data... sometimes in 3D. Australia, Oceania, Nepal and Canada are leading the way in terms of detailed maps of the schools involved in pilots; it would be great to see what artistic style Mongolia adds to that meme.

Cris A. (not verified) says: I just did a quick read through of the top articles, and it's mostly administrative. The top one is an announcement for a teacher training, the second one is a report on a seminar that they ran last month, the next one is an announcement for that seminar, and so on. After being there in 2008, I'm glad to see more people taking on the project and trying to move it forward. October 2, 2010 at 10 am

Cris A. (not verified) says: That is a report from the Yesonbulag village school in the Gobi-Altai province. They gave computers to 4 different classes: 3a, 3b, 4a, and 5a. They graphs are labeled "Demonstration of quality of learning". Several different subjects are represented, compared between 08-09 and 09-10 school years. The bar chart is the same info in a different format. October 4, 2010 at 2 pm
