    I am sure you have a lot of people on your team who get the “Ubuntu” part of the project. Be sure to get someone on your team who actually understands the “Edu” piece of it as well. Maybe parents, teachers, even administrators. Context is very important.

    @Sameer You’re absolutely right. We have one educator on the team and a few people who’s worked in education on some level before, but it’s not enough. We’re looking for more people who actually have a deep level of understanding when it comes to many different levels of education. If you’re willing to provide some insights, we’re very eager to hear from you!

    @Jonathan: Most of my experience comes from the OLPC world and as the parent of a six year old who goes to a public school in San Francisco. The frustrations are tremendous (“Oh, but does it run Adobe *?” is the most common question).

    I’d be happy to pitch in. Anything to get children an opportunity to do better no matter where they are.

    (PS: I do run a LTSP lab at SF State Univ, but that’s for college-level students.)
