Year End Review

The One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project in Nepal started in April 2008 with 135 students from grades two and six in two test schools in Lalitpur receiving E-Paati laptops along with 22 teachers trained on laptop integrated teaching methods. The E-Paatis were pre-loaded with curriculum-based interactive educational activities, E-Paath, which is an integral part of this novel approach. It was a humble beginning for an ambitious project that aims to transform education by improving quality and access through the integration of technology in the daily teaching-learning practice. With the long term vision to bring a systemic change, OLE Nepal went beyond simply equipping classrooms with hardware and connectivity, and set out to demonstrate an effective and scalable implementation model that put major emphasis on curriculum-based digital educational materials and teacher preparation.
