As KK (as Khürgülek Ondar goes by) gets ready to head back to Tuva, we decided to set up a training session on the Sugar UI, and collaboration between two XOs. I drove up to the rendezvous point (Ralph’s house), and saw a car with license plates “TANU2VA”. I knew I was there.
We also had Isabella Kleider and June Kleider of the Maroantsetra (Madagascar) project to help KK navigate the issues of questions children ask, training the teachers, and overall familiarity of the XO and Sugar. The session went fantastically with Tuvan salt tea, custom pizzas made by the resident pizza chef Nicole, and collaboration sessions with Chat activity, Write activity, and the famous Distance activity. Ralph has some instructional videos that we’ll put up soon.
Onward to Tuva!
