Seven XO laptop computers were donated to Sohodol Elementary School in Bran, Romania. On March 31, 2009, D. Dimancescu visited the school to see how one class (ages 12-13) was using them. Students, teachers, and the school director were highly enthusiastic about the short experiment.
“They make class activity much more lively and interactive.” offered one teacher. “And now the students are teaching us how to use the laptops. This is a change.”
Students are taking their computers home.
