At Sugar Labs, we make tools that learners use to explore, discover, create, and reflect.
At Sugar Labs, we make tools that learners use to explore, discover, create, and reflect. We are non-profit and led by volunteers. We distribute these tools freely and encourage our users to appropriate them, taking ownership and responsibility for their learning. Sugar is both a desktop and a collection of Activities.
Activities, as the name implies, are Apps that involve active engagement from the learner. Activities automatically save results to a journal, where reflections are recorded. Activity instances can be shared between learners; many support real-time collaboration.
Sugar Labs, a volunteer-driven project had its origins in the One Laptop Per Child project and is now a member project of the Software Freedom Conservancy, a non-profit organization that supports Software Libre. The mission of Sugar Labs is to support the Sugar community of users and developers and establish regional, autonomous “Sugar Labs” around the world to help learners “learn how to learn” by tailoring Sugar to local languages and curricula.
