Hi MichelleQ,
  great to see you on this list.  By coincidence I just got off the
phone with the leader of the http://www.kidsoncomputers.org/ project. 
It sounds very similar to what your group is doing as they are just
getting started placing computers in schools using all open source software.

I look forward to meeting you at SCALE and maybe your group can share
some of your experience or perhaps even collaborate with this other
group on any common areas.
