(as you may recall, Uruguay was the first to do a countrywide deployment of the XO laptop, as previously covered http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=07/05/12/077205 here ). Among the most interesting (translated):
"It was unthinkable for most of these children to own a computer. A girl told me that his father said that he would buy her a computer when chicken grew teeth", said Cabrera.
It became a part of daily life, as evidenced by these messages he received:
"I'm not letting Nicolás get his XO because he ignores me and doesn't respect me."
"Nelson is late because he forgot his XO in the drawer"
For the teacher, the arrival of the OLPC project (locally called Plan Ceibal) "is something very positive, one of the most important things done in the last years", because of the acquired knowledge and because of the fact that "any child, no matter his economic status, has access to the same tool".
