Demonstrating similar logic to that of my earlier Geek Love column, India has opted out of Nicholas Negroponte’s crazy “One Laptop per Child” scheme.
India’s Education Secretary Sudeep Banerjee stated that, “We need classrooms and teachers more urgently than fancy tools.” Now if that isn’t common sense, what is?
Mr. Banerjee went on to describe the project as, “pedagogically suspect”. Nicely put, sir.
ZDNet UK has some great insight on the matter.
Way to go, India!
