Submission + - OLPC XO Laptop educating educators at BETT London->

The Open Sourcerer writes: "Today was our first day at BETT — education's largest international conference on technology in education.

We were very fortunate to have been loaned 3 OLPC XO laptops by Tomi Davies (OLPC's CEO for Nigeria) to demonstrate the platform's Open Source Software and the incredible computer that runs it that was designed from the ground-up specifically for children in developing countries.

The response has been absolutely amazing! We have been completely inundated all day, every one wanted to touch it, see it and BUY IT! Our hosts at BETT — Open Forum Europe — kindly provided us (The Open Learning Centre) the stand space (come to stand SW105 if you are there) to assist them in spreading the word about the use, availability and power of Open Source for education and community development."
