This page has been created for the [http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Curriculum_Jam_Taipei Free Content Jam] at Wikimania in Taipei, August 2007. The aim of the content jam is to create content for inclusion in the the {{WP|XO-1}} (previously known as the $100 Laptop or Children's Machine) which is being developed by {{WP p|OLPC|OLPC.}}
+
__NOTOC__
  
This page is a sitemap for all pages to be used in the XO-1's library. Creating the sitemap is the first step - the pages can then be collected (via dump? or spider) and converted into a "bundle" - see...
+
=Sitemap=
 
+
This sitemap is constructed manually from the "OLPC content bundle" categories. It should be updated when a bundle is being prepared, and should contain no links except for pages to be included in the bundle.
==Deadline for inclusion in the next OLPC release==
 
Late September.  
 
 
 
For August 1 and 2 this page acts as a demonstration page. After this, it should be taken as an important project to be implemented based on the pages listed on this page. Pages listed here should be of high enough quality and relevance for inclusion in the OLPC project.
 
 
 
==Criteria==
 
 
 
Pages that are inspiring but not useful also have a place. And who knows what use they'll make of the info, anyway?
 
 
 
The pages should be understandable to some extent by children of 6 to 16 - our material is mostly aiming at the upper end of this range. We might also consider that some of the "how to" information is more likely to be used by the adults in the village (even if the children have to read it out to them, where literacy is an issue). (This point about use by adults is just speculation on my part - I haven't talked about this with the OLPC people, and it's too early to say how it will be used, anyway. --[[User:Chriswaterguy|Chriswaterguy]] &middot; <small>[[User talk:Chriswaterguy|talk]]</small>)
 
 
 
Apart from that, the page is more suitable the more it satisfies one or more of the following criteria:
 
* At least semi practical and/or doable
 
* Interesting or inspiring
 
* Economical feasible
 
 
 
I.e. an interesting and inspiring description of the Hexayurt will be of value, even if we think it's unlikely that many kids would ever use that information.
 
 
 
The idea of being "culturally appropriate" etc is something we can think about, but don't let this be a restriction - as users will be from a wide ranges of settings, culturally and otherwise, and it's ultimately for the users to work out what is appropriate for them.
 
 
 
===Clarity===
 
OLPC content is aimed at children of ages 6-16. Highly technical information should generally be made understandable by:
 
* making the English clear, and easy to understand, but without losing content; or
 
* creating a more straightforward page on Appropedia, which is then listed on the sitemap when ready.
 
 
 
===Doesn't have to be everything===
 
Note that this is just a base of offline information to be made available on the OLPC laptop. When net access is available, the users will be able to view the complete and up-to-date Appropedia site.
