"One Laptop Per Child"

One Laptop Per Child
CBS
Sunday Dec. 3,2007
Sixty Minutes

Negraponti developed a laptop that can be used by the third world classmate. It's called :"the classmate". Americans can buy one classmate now until the end of December only. When one is purchased, a child in the third world will also receive one.Children have ten hours of programming in a battery. then, a child can generate more energy by turning this turnkey over a few times.
The computer cannot be ruined by water or sand. It has been used very successfullyin Cambodia and Brazil and now heis introducing it in parts of Africa. What do you think of this? please remember to always leave your link and thank you

Sounds like a good plan to me....I think more kids need to be connected and have technology available to them.
