Evaluation of OLPC programs globally: a literature review

Evaluation of OLPC programs globally

This literature review was undertaken by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) with the intention of identifying existing approaches to the evaluation of the OLPC programs globally. It was expected that there would be few examples, partly because the OLPC program is a relatively recent initiative, and this has proved to be the case.

The review indicates that because most of the deployment projects have only started recently, there has been little time to conduct any longitudinal assessments of its impact; the methodology, timing and conduct of the evaluations have been affected by the variations in project implementation models; the findings from existing evaluations are largely anecdotal and positive in nature; and recommendations arising from the evaluations generally relate to training needs and technical matters.
