|A bit of a check-list for 'One per Child'|
The idea I have is to look at this in conjunction with the nearby sign-age detailing some of the issues that crop up around such plans.
The project goal was for each child to be able to access a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop quite a goal.
When electronic computers first escaped from the University IBM reckoned the world market would be well below 100 and famously the computing power of a modern smart phone outperforms what computing power got the USA's NASA to land a man on the moon in the 1960s -so why should it now be seen as so important to emerging economies?
Well computers and more importantly Laptops are reckoned to be a 'window' in terms of communication and a tool: to help them thinking and discovering. Laptops are a way for youngsters to learn through independent interaction and exploration and the 'One Per child' idea is continuing in new iterations.
