OLPC Pre pilot evaluation report Haití

This is an important information

Based on observational and usage-tracking data, four of the 17 activities available on the XO laptop (Record, Write, Browse Internet, and Paint) represented 88 percent of laptop usage for the XO Camp participants. Moreover, student exploratory usage of the XO declined under the following circumstances: (1) When XO laptop activities were formally introduced as part of a teacher’s lesson plan, (2) when interest in organized group activity increased, and (3) when student focus level was high. This was especially evident during Week 2 of the evaluation, when the fifth-grade class drastically reduced usage of the Paint and Record programs after being formally introduced to the Internet and receiving an essay-writing assignment.
