I am a Masters student in the beginning stages of designing a research project for my thesis. I plan to research the impacts of the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) program in Rwanda by conducting ethnographic fieldwork (probably a microethnography) in some of the primary schools there. (See for more info on OLPC).  Reviewing the literature on methodology for anthropology and education has only revealed a mass of criticism about the limits of microethnography, but I have yet to find anything about changes or proposed solutions to those problems. I am looking for something that is a concrete example of successful school ethnography to draw ideas for my own study. Does anyone have any suggestions? Something post 1990 would be preferable.

Many thanks!

It would be useful for you to join the Media Anthropology network Just send a message to the convenor John Postill who is a professor in media studies at Sheffield U and you can introduce yourself to the experts there to ask for info and so on.It would be an idea to look into media anthropology for ideas. Good luck!
