My introduction to the workshops with the children and staff at Lubuto Library at Ngwerere in Lusaka, Zambia. The OLPC laptops were all active and the children were doing some hands-on discovery on this first day. The eight days of workshops I am delivering are funded by a USAID/WorldVision grant from the All Children Reading Challenge.
