Open Slate Project
The Open Slate project fosters the construction and use of personal computing devices designed to facilitate information sharing in loosely structured environments. A key component is Chalk Dust, instructional applications and content developed using the open-source model. These concepts are aimed primarily at high school and college learning, but success will lead to much broader appeal.

The intended outcome of the project is a cultural phenomenon, one that compares well with the response to previously new technology such as CDs, pagers, and cell-phones. Creation of the technology alone will not be sufficient for success. Neither will adoption by a school or even a school district. Only when the technology described here has become a major part of student culture can it be considered a success.
