One Laptop Per Child ajoute un nouveau magasin dédié aux applis d’apprentissage XO ainsi qu’une gamme élargie d’appareils d’apprentissage mobiles

Poursuivant sa mission de mettre la technologie éducative connectée à la portée des enfants du monde entier, One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) a annoncé aujourd’hui le lancement du XO-4 Touch, son nouvel ordinateur portable à écran tactile fonctionnant sous Android et de Dreams Store, une boutique d’applis d’apprentissage XO qui sera lancée avec plus de 500 applis destinées à la gamme des appareils d’apprentissage mobiles d’OLPC. L’annonce a été faite aujourd’hui dans le cadre du salon international Consumer Electronics Show (CES) à Las Vegas.

« Le nouveau modèle XO-4 Touch est notre ordinateur portable le plus évolué à ce jour et offre une expérience unique grâce à son double démarrage pour Linux et Android », a souligné Rodrigo Arboleda, PDG d’OLPC. « La production du XO-4 va commencer dans les prochaines semaines et les 50 000 premiers modèles sont consacrés à l’Uruguay, le premier pays ayant adopté le projet de fourniture des ordinateurs portables OLPC pour chaque enfant du pays ».

L’interface tactile du XO-4 Touch et le système d’exploitation Android permettent aux utilisateurs de profiter pleinement du contenu du système d’apprentissage XO qui a été lancé l’an dernier avec la gamme primée des tablettes XO d’OLPC. L’annonce du lancement du XO-4 Touch renforce la présence sur le marché des appareils mobiles d’OLPC, qui a récemment annoncé l’expansion de son projet de tablettes XO, conçues pour OLPC par Yves Behar et le studio de design fuseproject basé à San Francisco. Les dernières versions des tablettes XO à prix modiques qui viennent de sortir sont la nouvelle tablette XO de 7 pouces et la nouvelle tablette XO de 10 pouces munie d’un clavier Bluetooth.

Pour assurer un accès direct à la programmation robuste développée pour le système d’apprentissage XO et pour soutenir son nouvel ordinateur portable XO-4 Touch et ses nouveaux modèles de tablettes XO, OLPC lance actuellement Dreams Store, une boutique dédiée aux applis d’apprentissage XO et la première boutique App Store Android personnalisée pour les enfants. Gérée par OLPC, la Dream Store donnera accès à plus de 500 applications éducatives pour enfants de différents âges et niveaux de compétences. En plus des nouvelles applications, OLPC continue à développer l’interface des systèmes d’apprentissage XO et a récemment ajouté des contenus éducatifs et des activités pour de nouveaux « rêves », tels que XO Banker, XO Entrepreneur, XO Nutritionist, XO DJ et d’autres titres.

« Nous sommes ravis par l’accueil chaleureux que les parents et éducateurs ont réservé à notre système d’apprentissage XO », a déclaré Giulia D’Amico, vice-présidente exécutive chez OLPC. « En seulement douze mois, le système d’apprentissage XO et sa nouvelle méthode pédagogique basée sur notre écosystème éducatif ont été adoptés par 10 pays et sont disponibles en 5 langues. Ce fut une première année incroyable et nous anticipons avec intérêt une plus grande expansion mondiale et l’accès de l’utilisateur à notre contenu d’apprentissage XO grâce au Dreams Store ».

Le système d’apprentissage XO se trouve au cœur des ordinateurs portables et des tablettes d’OLPC. Cette interface axée sur l’enfant permet aux enfants, parents et éducateurs d’accéder aux contenus éducatifs dernier cri qui ont été conçus et sélectionnés par OLPC en raison de leurs contenus appropriés à divers âges et de leur valeur éducative. Grâce à l’interface « de rêves » unique d’OLPC, le système d’apprentissage XO encourage les enfants à créer leur propre aventure éducative en s’inspirant de ce qu’ils veulent être aujourd’hui, ou demain quand ils seront adultes. Pour s’assurer que les éducateurs pourront exploiter pleinement la puissance du système d’apprentissage XO, OLPC mettra sous peu à disposition un nouveau guide du professeur (Teacher's Guide).

Le célèbre designer et collaborateur de longue date d’OLPC, Yves Behar, fondateur et PDG de Fuseproject, a précisé : « Nous voulions que l’interface utilisateur et le design de la tablette offrent une expérience harmonieuse qui encourage les progrès, tout en suscitant autant d’émerveillement que le fit le premier ordinateur portable d’OLPC pour les enfants du monde entier ».

Parmi les partenaires de classe internationale qui créent actuellement des contenus et des activités pédagogiques pour le système d’apprentissage XO, figurent Barnes & Noble, Oxford University Press, Discovery Kids Puterbugs, TED, Bankeroo, Educatina, Magma Mobile, Square Iglu et d’innombrables autres partenaires. OLPC continue à attirer de nouveaux partenaires pour créer du contenu et des activités éducatives pour le système d’apprentissage XO et plusieurs nouveautés seront annoncées sous peu.

À propos des tablettes XO, de l’apprentissage XO et du projet One Laptop per Child

La gamme des dispositifs mobiles XO est entièrement conçue et développée par OLPC pour exploiter la puissance d’un appareil connecté en vue de créer de nouvelles méthodes permettant aux enfants d’apprendre à apprendre. L’arrivée de la tablette XO en 2013 a également marqué le lancement mondial du système d’apprentissage XO, conçu comme une interface axée sur l’enfant afin de permettre aux enfants de construire, d’apprendre et de rêver dans le cadre de la mission d’OLPC. OLPC a été lancé en 2005 au MIT Media Lab comme un projet visant à offrir une éducation moderne aux enfants du monde entier grâce à l’accès à des ordinateurs portables et à des appareils connectés. Depuis, l’organisation a distribué plus de 3 millions de ses ordinateurs portables XO spécialement conçus pour les enfants dans 60 pays, et la tablette XO prolonge cette expérience sous un facteur de forme de tablette moderne. Toutes ces activités relèvent de la philosophie de l’apprentissage par la pratique préconisée par le Media Lab au fil des ans.

@ThingsExpo Stories
The 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 17th International Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - announces that its Call for Papers is open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
The multi-trillion economic opportunity around the "Internet of Things" (IoT) is emerging as the hottest topic for investors in 2015. As we connect the physical world with information technology, data from actions, processes and the environment can increase sales, improve efficiencies, automate daily activities and minimize risk. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ed Maguire, Senior Analyst at CLSA Americas, will describe what is new and different about IoT, explore financial, technological and real-world impact across consumer and business use cases. Why now? Significant corporate and venture...
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...
Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices.

Prior to joining BI Intelligence, he worked analyzing bank technology for Corporate Insight and The Clearing House Pay...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.

How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
