 While I could complete the RFP for a 1 hour talk, I'd like to do

 So would anyone like to come to Rochester with your XOs and help lead a
 3 or 6 hour hands on session?  If so, what should we present for 3 hours?
 I need ideas!

last time I talked to the NYSCATE folks I had a booth for the RIT game  
dept again this year.  Last year and this year I will be showcasing  
our OLPC efforts in that booth and am happy to use it to support the  
efforts in any way I can.

 Hi Karlie,

 Its looking like Rochester is going to be a hotbed of Sugar  
 development.  We are hoping to co-locate a Sugar conference with  
 NYSCATE.

 Given that I think we should really go for it on in terms of  
 presentations.  My thought is lets propose two hands on 3 hour  
 workshops.  Using Sugar in the Elementary School Classroom and  
 another specializing in Using Sugar in Math Instruction. Lets also  
 sign up for a 1 hour lecture format session on Sugar.

 Who else is going to be there? Is there someone from Math4 group  
 who can be Presentor 1 for the Math Class?

 Of course I'll be in town and I've done a 50 minute presentation on  
 Math4 at Ithaca EdTech day and Bar Camp Rochester[1].  I was the one  
 who got everyone going on Math4 in Rochester (Fedora XO donation to  
 RIT and liaison work).
 We also have Steve Jacobs the RIT professor who ran with my  
 suggestion to teach Open Source development.
 And last but not least, Fred Grose who'll be overseeing the RIT Co- 
 ops this summer, Wiki Magician, and the guy who's been beyond  
 helpful filling in our knowledge gaps concerning OLPC and Sugar Labs.
 Steve and Fred were also the driving force behind an OLPC Grass  
 Roots group in Rochester.  I just happened to come to the first  
 meeting as a Fedora-OLPC SIG rep.  The rest is kismet.  (Rochester  
 NY is a hot bed for FOSS to begin with LUG of Rochester is one of  
 the oldest Linux User Groups in the world running continuously for  
 15 years)

 Using hotbed and Rochester (especially when November is part of the
 context) is a high crime. ;-)
   

Oh Come on, it won't even be high season for snow yet.  We're still 
getting rain in November and if it does snow it won't be that much.  
Besides if any DPW can deal with a little snow it's ours. 

If you need someone who's not going to freak out driving in snow, just 
give me a call and I'll make sure you all arrive safely. 

 Just an FYI for forgetful folks like me: Nov 22-24 would be
 Thanksgiving week, no?  Make travel arrangements EARLY!

I talked to the NYSCATE organizers late last week.  Once they get over
the shock of a bunch of Sugar contributors wanting to come to the
_teachers_ to see what they want, and need, from a Learning Platform,
I think things will go really well!

Hi Karlie,

Walter and I are doing a talk at a similar show MassCUE (computer using
educators) Oct 28-29th. I think we are just signed up for a 1 hour talk.

We will be doing 9 hours over 3 days of professional development using an
existing computer lab and SoaS in August in Worchester, MA.

If you do a hands on session you could have people bring a laptop and use
SoaS.

We should work together to create a 3-hour curriculum on using Sugar in a
math curriculum highlighting some of the results of your 4th grade math
project.  It would be great to take teachers through examples of activities
already aligned with curriculum standards to making their own activities.

What is the time frame on the 4th grade project?  When would be a good time
to look at results?

Thanks!
Caroline

We have a meeting tentatively scheduled for the afternoon of May 18.  
When we firm things up, I'll post a note at 
http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Math4Team/Meetings

At that point we'll have final projects from the RIT students and I 
should have more info on what's been made and/or what point things are 
at.  If needed I'll assign work teams to pick up where the RIT kids left 
off so we'll have activities in various forms of completion to show case. 

Some that will be ready for early tests and feedback, others that will 
be very rough around the edges.

I hope to start getting our ducks in a row over the next couple of 
weeks.  We'll most likely lead the charge on the Fourth Grade Math
