Different from what we have been doing these past few weeks in OLPC, today we started to disassemble some XO tablets that we will be bringing on our trip to St. John. Following instructions, like the picture below (from the site: wiki.laptop.org), we learned how to dismantle the XO tablet in order to put a new battery in as well as how to replace the screen. There were a lot of screws that we had to keep track of and, luckily, my partner and I did not lose any of them. After we replaced the screen and battery, per the instructions on the site, we had to set the time on the tablets by first turning them on and then typing in a short code. Once we finished setting the time, we had to restart the tablet. If our screen did not have a sad face when it was restarting, then it meant that the time had been set. Then, if your screen did not have the sad face, you and your partner began to trouble-shoot the tablets. For instance, we checked that the keyboard was working as well as the Wifi and internet. Although it was a little stressful having to keep track of the screws and hoping that I did not break anything while taking the tablet apart, the experience was great! It made me realize what we are bringing to the kids in St. John as well as what I have signed up to take part in. Even though learning Scratch and Etoys have been fun, taking apart the tablets today was just as great. For that reason, I am more excited than I was at the beginning to travel to St. John, and help the kids there learn how to put the tablets together and use them.
