one school in India

Joel Stanley sent me a link to a detailed report of a trial of the OLPC at Khairat school in India (Khairat Chronicle), written by Carla Gomez Monroy, an OLPC learning consultant

It contains the details of how the OLPC is integrated into the day to day workings of the school, the role of the teacher, the learning culture of the classroom, how the students use it, how some of the parents have become involved, how the OLPC has been a motivator to improve school attendance and a detailed description of the broader culture and how the OLPC impacts onto it.

Stunning, copious photographs illustrate this extremely informative chronicle. The caption of the photo I have included says:
Teacher said, his relationship with the children was closer, in the sense that together they explore the XO
