One Laptop per Child or OLPC is an education project whose mission is

To create educational opportunities for the world's poorest children by providing each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop with content and software designed for collaborative, joyful, self-empowered learning. When children have access to this type of tool they get engaged in their own education. They learn, share, create, and collaborate. They become connected to each other, to the world and to a brighter future.[1]

OLPC hopes to inspire a generation of young people to create their own digital learning content that can be freely shared across the world.

Tutorials for younger audiences and non-technical teachers will be important in helping these new learning environment flourish.

A set of learning materials in Spanish[2] has been developed by TelMex for a Mexico deployment of 50,000 machines.
