This month in STARS, we read an article in Mashable which discusses an effort going on in Ethiopia. The One Laptop Per Child organization has been dropping off laptops in villages with pre-loaded instructions and sees what happens. No instruction whatsoever.
The children have been teaching themselves how to use the devices and run the apps!
This is an incredible finding and I believe will lead to a better world through education.
