Knowledge for development, knowledge as development


Looking at what One Laptop Per Child  is about highlights two aspects to knowledge in development:

  • knowledge as development (OLPC’s educational mission)
  • knowledge for development, which they’re happy to have included in the “content bundles” loaded onto the XO laptops (based on our conversations with them).

Both aspects of knowledge are essential – and so is collaboration to build this knowledge in an open way.
