World - Sugar Labs has just launched the third version of Sugar on a Stick, its educational system for children.

Indeed, Mirabelle, the third version of Sugar on a Stick, which improves digital book reading, is now available. It offers a collaborative learning environment without any manipulation on the original operating system already installed using a preloaded USB key. The Sugar children's environment can therefore run on any PC, Mac or Netbook.

If we compare Mirabelle to the previous version, which Infobourg had spoken about, better stability and improved system customization possibilities are the main advantages.

The project manager, Sebastian Dziallas, explained that they decided to make available a version that easily adapts to his environment and that with Mirabelle, teachers could adjust the activities according to the interests of the children.

Sugar Labs, a non-profit organization behind the development of the educational platform Sugar, also unveiled the "Sugar Creation Kit", a DVD that includes Mirabelle, the documentation associated with it and a multitude of activities for Sugar (already used by more than 1.5 million children worldwide).

It is also possible to download the activities in the Sugar Activity Library .
