Revision as of 10:10, 5 March 2011

This page is for planning the summit in Uruguay May 5th to 7th 2011. All subject to modifications.

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.

Pre-Summit "Conozco Uruguay" Exploratory 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!
