"The Australian Government is providing over $11 million to support
the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) Program which will deliver over 50,000
custom built laptops to primary students in regional and remote
Australia as part of a 12 month pilot program. The OLPC Australia
Organisation (OLPC Australia) aims to support the learning
opportunities of indigenous children, particularly those in remote
Australia, by providing primary school aged children with a connected
XO laptop as part of a sustainable training and support program.
Participating schools will also receive information and communications
technology (ICT) coordinator professional development, local repair
kits, and access to helpdesk and online support."
