OLPC in Greek schools in 2008

According to the latest news, Greek schools will be provided with 15.000 units of the OLPC project for their students, starting next year.

This first shipment will be considered a test phase, while the target group are the students of "dimotiko" and "gymnasio".

For over a year now, a team of more than 300 people all over the country are participating in an attempt to translate the environment and applications, as well as provide new ones, in the native language. The project is coordinated by Mr. Theodoros Karounos, of the Metsovio University and included academics from several other institutions, as well as individual volunteers.
