What happens after saturation: a Ceibal story

Alicia Casas de Barran, the Director of Uruguay's National Archives, speaks today about "what happens when all students and teachers have their own laptops" at the World Bank in DC.  She has set a good standard for countries interested in digitizing national learning and government material, and it is great to see the national libraries and archives joining the public discussion. Uruguay continues to build on its success, which last month reported a tripling of access to the Internet in the country's interior, and that 85% of all children were online. Plan Ceibal continues to expand its vision for the program to include older children.

What I saw was amazing. Not only because every children have a laptop, but mainly because children that hardly have access to a phone now have a laptop. June 7, 2010 at 12 pm
