Welcome the [https://launchpad.net/~sugarteam Ubuntu Sugar Team], we are the folk that are maintaining the Sugar Learning Environment on Ubuntu. Sugar, originally designed for the One Laptop Per Child projects, promotes sharing, collaborative learning, and reflection. Through Sugar's clarity of design, children and their teachers have the opportunity to use computation on their own terms; they are free to reshape, reinvent, and reapply both software and content into powerful learning activities.

 Use System/Administration/"USB Startup Disk Creator" in a Ubuntu Desktop to Make an Installer USB. Use this USB to install USR on your netbook.

== Installing Ubuntu Sugar Remix on Ubuntu 10.10 ==
On Ubuntu 10.10, the ubuntu-sugar-remix package is available in Universe, so you do not need to add the apt repository to install it. Just:

{{{
  sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sugar-remix
}}}

and you're good to go.

== Getting involved in Ubuntu Sugar Remix ==
Ubuntu Sugar Remix is Open Source Learning tool that is built by the [[UbuntuSugarRemix/GettingInolved|Ubuntu Sugar Remix]] (also [[https://launchpad.net/~sugarteam|launchpad team]]), [[http://www.ubuntu.com/community|Ubuntu]](TM), and [[http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Welcome_to_the_Sugar_Labs_wiki|Sugar Labs]]^®^ communities.

== What is Ubuntu Sugar Remix? ==
The vision for the Ubuntu Sugar Remix is to provide students preK to 12 with a learning platform. We envision younger children using the Award wining [[http://www.sugarlabs.org | Sugar]] Learning Platform and allowing older students to move to a standard Ubuntu desktop as they become cognitively ready, with an easy settings change.

USR will work on a wide variety of hardware, either installed on the hard drive or on a portable storage device, such as a USB stick. In our vision of the future USR will interact easily and seamlessly with an open source server environment (such as the XS project from Sugar) to provide backup and portfolio support (e.g. Mahara), collaboration, educational resources (e.g. local copies of Wikipedia) , Learning Management System (e.g. Moodle) and Student Information System (e.g. SchoolTool) types supports.

USR will allow students to assist students in accessing the internet and all its educational resources but will also allow them to work and learn in situations where they do not have internet access.
