Information written during the organization of the summit

This page is for planning the EduJAM! summit in Uruguay May 5th to 7th 2011.

Don't forget the pre-summit tour Apr 30 - May 5, as well as post-summit codesprint May 8/9 onwards -- dates are final but details are evolving!

Main goals

  • Focus on developers. It does not mean at all we're not concerned about educational aspects, but as a developers community we have huge challenges and the summit will be more of a working instance than a "reflection" instance.
  • Exceed OLPC and Sugar. The developers community goes beyond OLPC and Sugar, and this could be a good instance for bringing "non-olpc organizations" to the conversation.
  • Focus on South America. Bring as many south american developers as possible to Uruguay.


A first sketch of the event (preliminary, see also update here!) is as follows: Program committee:

  • Andrés Ambrois
  • Walter Bender
  • Gabriel Eirea
  • Pablo Flores
  • Gonzalo Odiard
  • Fernando Sansberro

Pre-Summit "Conozco Uruguay" Exploration Tour

We're organizing a set of in-person activities for those who want to know more about the Uruguayan/Ceibal experience, visiting different points of the country, meeting with families, teachers, etc.

This will happen during the 5-6 days prior to the summit (from Saturday April 30th to Thursday May 5th) for independent and resilient travelers, committed to "anthropological" learning through patient exploration -- details are emerging here!

If you want to attend, please write us:

Including Volunteer Organizers: Martín Abente, Walter Bender, Gabriel Eirea, David Farning, Pablo Flores, Adam Holt, Bernie Innocenti, Aleksey Lim, Anish Mangal, Gonzalo Odiard, Andrés Ambrois


We'll put here some information about possible places for staying. At the same time we'll make a volunteers hosting program, so Uruguayan volunteers can host some of the attendees. More information soon.

Uruguay (generally) uses 220V European electrical outlets so please consider bringing a small converter.

Wifi access will be sought where possible, but not guaranteed.
