  • antjje1 Antje Breitkopf, Magister Artium in Pedagogy, Cultural Anthropology & Political Science Observations of “Una Laptop por Niño” – OLPC Peru – Antje Breitkopf
    Nowadays mobile devices are no longer exclusively found in highly technologized countries but can also be stumbled upon in schools that are far off the beaten track, for example in the countryside of Peru, where since 2008 laptops are being given to children as part of the worldwide ”one-laptop-per-child” initiative. In 2010 Antje Breitkopf conducted a field research in Peru to gather material for her MA-thesis in Pedagogy, Cultural Anthropology and Political science (Univ. Hamburg) and ePedagogy Design (AALTO Univ. Helsinki). She visited 12 primary schools in two neighboring, but geographically and culturally very distinct regions, interviewed teachers and various other people involved in the project, and got a close insight into the organization and development of OLPC Peru over a period of more than 6 months.

    After briefly introducing the OLPC project, she will present a short overview of her experiences and then concentrate on the question of where and when mobile learning can and does happen in that particular environment and with that particular technology. Here she will propose different ways to conceptualize mobile learning, meaning for example the mobilization of contents and the diversification of locations, but also enabling children to exchange and collaborate, and to have one device for many different tasks and activities. Those possible definitions of mobile learning shall be discussed and their applicability for this project shall be deliberated. Furthermore there will be given an insight into classroom observations, of how and when the laptops were actually being used, what progress was made and what problems were faced. Finally Ms. Breitkopf will give an outlook on potential capabilities and identify general conditions necessary to enable and realize mobile learning with view on the local context.
