Sridhar reports from Yirkalla, Northern Territory

[caption id="attachment_1637" align="alignnone" width="450" caption="The screen's so bright, they've gotta wear shades"]The screen's so bright, they've gotta wear shades[/caption] From OLPC Australia, Sridhar Dhanapalan reports on the latest deployment in Yirkalla -- a follow-up to earlier work done [two months ago] in 3 comunities in East Arnhem Land.  This is the first proper deployment of 1.XO-5's anywhere in the world! Sridhar's report is worth a read - though I'm looking forward to hearing more about how the 1.5's are being used in class.  (Sridhar: I'd love to have a guest post from you with more about how the laptops are being used, and how the initial handout went) Over the weekend, there was a nice short writeup of the progress in the deployment there by the Daily Telegraph.  They took some gorgeous photographs while they were visiting the schools.  And here's a lovely video from the same part of the country. And I just saw the updated map of all of the major and minor deployments in Australia -- aside from the icon selection, this map is fantastic.
