Dr. Bert Freudenberg


1 hour Talk and Q/A

Afterwards you are invited to a refreshment.

Most of the two billion children in developing countries have
access to education. The non-profit "One Laptop per Child" project is
working on a learning machine, a cheap, networked computer with
software to
support "learning to learn" for every child. One of its software
is "Etoys", a tile-based authoring environment written on top of Squeak.
The talk will present the OLPC project, its current state of development
in general and the progress on Etoys in particular.

Dr. Bert Freudenberg got a PhD from the University of Magdeburg
(on non-photorealistic realtime rendering). He worked for impara GmbH
in Magdeburg developing software for children. Currently he is a
developer working for Alan Kay's Viewpoints Research Institute on
porting the
Squeak and Etoys environment to the 100 dollar laptop.
