I don't think OLPC is the issue anyway. What it is keeping KDE-Edu outside
OLPC are technical reasons most of all. And besides OLPC there is a huge
bunch of schools that are using PC's.

About what albert said, nothing to add, just that I agree with the
impression. What the teachers complained the most was that they expected to
see someone having used the tools before them and seems few use cases are
getting to them.

Well... btw, If you are interested on the slides, you can find them here:
