  • The OLPC Programme enhances, strengthens and aligns with regional and country education goals and plans, including countries’ global commitments to the MDGs and Education For All;There is broad country-level demand and political and community support for the OLPC programme in the Pacific, as evidenced by formal requests for trials by 13 countries;Small trials, while encouraging, provide an insufficient evidence base for policy makers; It is essential that M&E systems be integrated at the outset of any OLPC programme;Broader-based regional technical assistance is needed to aid country capacity building;A standing stock of XO laptops and hardware peripherals should be centrally maintained in the region to efficiently feed trial deployments in a timely and cost-efficient manner.We’ve learned from both failures and successes…CHILDREN: learning to learn (constructionism)“using ICT to learn, not learning to use ICT”better quality basic education, better teachingaccess to latest curricula, the world’s info, and culture1.6m digital booksskills for lifelong learning (information literacy)protection of their own culture and languagebringing new skills and knowledge home to shareCOMMUNITIES For remote communities, OLPC opens up access to:govt servicestelemedicinehealth and nutrition info & edumicrofinancemarkets and market dataweather info, disaster and emergency preparedness and responsewill help arrest urbanisationCOUNTRIESPrepares the next generation for a connected global futureFosters and supports economic development at national, community and individual levelsTargets those most in need, poor rural isolated communities: “Base of the Pyramid” development initiativeDrives development of both knowledge and skills economyUnlocks skills and productive potential of entire communityCatalyst for creating new derivative businesses in hardware and software support, maintenance, repairs, spare parts etcBuilds infrastructure to kickstart ecommerce and support e-microcredit markets

  • Recommendation 1 [Objective 5, 6] -- That both initial and further training for teachers be an ongoing part of the OLPC program, and that this training include technical expertise in order to address minor technical problems and professional content in order to incorporate relevant curriculum material and to improve learning opportunities for students. Recommendation 2 [Objectives 5, 8] -- That training in OLPC usage be provided for parents and other community members so that parents can assist their children further in their studies.Recommendation 3 [Objective 2] -- That further curriculum content via the laptops be developed which reflects national curriculum and local context, and that instructions be provided in both English and Solomon Islands Pidgin. Recommendation 4 [Objective 5] -- That local technical support be provided to schools in the OLPC program and that local community members be trained to provide this support. Recommendation 5 [Objective 5] -- That solutions to issues, such as charging of the computers, be investigated. Recommendation 6 [Objective 5] -- That, wherever possible, printers be provided to schools with a laptop program and that the efficacy of providing appropriate keyboards and ‘mice’ be investigated, and that, where possible, the provision of servers accompany any rollout. Recommendation 7 [Objectives 1, 5] -- That MEHRD maintain close involvement in, and monitoring of, the OLPC program. Recommendation 8 [Objective 5] -- That there be provision for new enrolments to schools to have access to laptops and that new staff have appropriate training as soon as possible. Recommendation 9 [Relevant to all eight objectives] -- That ongoing monitoring and evaluation be incorporated into any future rollout, and that baseline data be collected prior to rollouts in at least a representative sample of schools so that both quantitative and qualitative data can be gathered.
