I've worked for Plan Ceibal in Uruguay since it began, in some official and some unofficial activities.

I think I have a comprehensive field look on how Sugar is used in schools and how developers communities can contribute. Part of my experience is documented in the blog:; some of its articles have been translated by volunteers in

I've worked on some projects related to Plan Ceibal and the 1:1 educational model:

  • Proyecto Flor de Ceibo with Universidad de la República.
  • ILATIS (Social Impact of 1:1 projects in Latin America and the Caribbean) with Fundación DESEM, within an international research team supported by IDRC-CRDI.
  • Founding member of ceibalJAM!, a community of free educational software developers in Uruguay.
  • Compiled and produced in 2008 the book "Ceibal en la sociedad del siglo XXI", which can be downloaded here.
  • Currently completing a book compilation for UNESCO, on the social mobilization caused by one computer per child projects
