"What's wrong with learning today, and why launch OLPC specifically to tackle learning?" Klein asked, saying he believed formal learning was a bit forced, doesn't work as well as it should, and sometimes students who want access can't find what they need to go forward.
But more than that, Klein said, the project is looking for tools for re-creation. "Existing games are nice, and cute," but games for things like learning language are the "gem they're targeting."
Most importantly, Klein said in a direct plea to the serious game developers in front of him, the project needed frameworks and scripting environments -- tools with which children themselves could create their own content.
