Funky, Futuristic XO Classrooms on YouTube Cannal Ceibal - OLPC News
"Did you know that the OLPC classrooms in Uruguay were futuristic designs from the 1970's? Talk a look at this video and check out the fly cribs for these kids. It reminds me of a set from Dr. Who or the original Star Trek - all those primary colors for every object in the room. Very cool in a flashback kinda way." [That's true, but what struck me even more was how the pedagogy seem to be from the 1970's too. If this is indicative of the classroom dynamic that Proyecto Ceibal is producing, I'm all of a sudden much *less* impressed by what's going on in Uruguay.]

Ellos, luego de experimentar todos los recursos que nos brinda la XO, sintieron que estaban "aburridos". Gracias a la prima de Cristian descubrieron el Scratch y desde ese momento no lo abandonaron más."
