it reminds me of the TED talk we watched in the lecture. So I do think it’s worth while to bring technology to the educational area.
ninety-nine percent of children in developing countries leave school without having touched a computer. The non-profit One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) brings learning, information, and communication to children in developing countries.
OLPC’s mission is to empower the world’s poorest children through education
We aim to provide each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop. To this end, we have designed hardware, content and software for collaborative, joyful, and self-empowered learning. With access to this type of tool, children are engaged in their own education, and learn, share, and create together. They become connected to each other, to the world and to a brighter future.
