I propose using web technologies for completely offline activities. Allowing activity designers to quickly build activities utilizing widely-used tools. We need Karma (original idea [[USER:BryanWB| Bryan Berry]]) to enable web designers to quickly build activities for the XO without having to learn a whole new skillset.

So...I will creat an educational framework (Karma) using html5 + JavaScript, it will handle animation ( through <canvas>), sounds (through <audio>), also client-side i18n (according to browser locale) and general persistence (Gears) at the end we will have a re-usable javascript libraries for lesson plan reader (ideally with plain html rather than a pdf or other proprietary format), navigation, help, etc. this framework will allow web designers to reuse their existing skills and tools.

The objetive is to provide a single prototype activity which could be used as a template for sugarizing AJAX activities. I will recreate an existing activity such as one of [http://www.pustakalaya.org/external-content/static/epaath/E-Paath-2.activity/activity/Activity/MenuStage.html OLE Nepal's flash activities].

* ''' What is the timeline for development of your project? The Summer of Code work period is 7 weeks long, May 23 - August 10; tell us what you will be working on each week. (As the summer goes on, you and your mentor will adjust your schedule, but it's good to have a plan at the beginning so you have an idea of where you're headed.) Note that you should probably plan to have something "working and 90% done" by the midterm evaluation (July 6-13); the last steps always take longer than you think, and we will consider cancelling projects which are not mostly working by then.'''

I have been talking with Bryan Berry [http://lists.sugarlabs.org/archive/sugar-devel/2009-March/013043.html] and I have read several threads in the mailing list. Bryan has convinced me that open web technologies are the correct way in order to get an open-source ecosystem.

So... it seems that my experience with flash is not useful, well.. Flash uses Action Script that is really similar to Java Script (both are basend on ECMAScript).

* ''' If your project is successfully completed, what will its impact be on the Sugar Labs community? Give 3 answers, each 1-3 paragraphs in length. The first one should be yours. The other two should be answers from members of the Sugar Labs community, at least one of whom should be a Sugar Labs GSoC mentor. Provide email contact information for non-GSoC mentors.'''

I will make activity designers happy :) so, it will expand the range of activities and it will increase the number of Sugar programmers. You would be able to "view source" for any activity developed with Karma. Copy it - improve it - test it - release it!

* ''' Sugar Labs will be working to set up a small (5-30 unit) Sugar pilot near each student project that is accepted to GSoC so that you can immediately see how your work affects children in a deployment. We will make arrangements to either supply or find all the equipment needed. Do you have any ideas on where you would like your deployment to be, who you would like to be involved, and how we can help you and the community in your area begin it?'''
