We used a similar approach when looking at the $100 laptop. The XO laptop (a.k.a. $100 laptop) is an innovative break-through device designed to revolutionize the way children learn in even the most rural and poor conditions.
The computer is embedded with social media tools such as a camera, a music making software and its mesh network that connects and shares with other computers. However, little attention has been given to how this device is actually being used. We propose the making of a documentary as an ethnographic study to discover the true impact of the XO (version 1) laptop. Here are the slides from our presentation.
