  • Satshjha Satshjha It will be good if while recognizing Sugata Mitra for his insight, we also acknowledge that hole-in-the-wall is an eye-opener but not a methodology or pedagogy..

    OLPC seems to be a marriage of pedagogy and technology, somethingtaht has a transformational impact on child's learning.

    It will be good for Vatsalya to have laptops for all teh children. If that is the goal you would like to have I will be happy to donate one laptop. Let us find 50 others and turn this into an experiement everyone comes to be inspired from.

    For I believe that Professor Negroponte has the track record of creating some of the most innovative pieces of information technology. Some value his total contribution throughMIT Media Lab at some $3000 billion, about four times the GDP of India. That is a huge contribution indeed.

    Sometimes we throw away the stone that has diamond in the rough because we are not jewellers. India may be losing an opportunity by not embracing OLPC the same way. While there can be many vews on the matter, there is little in denying the country an opportunity to let a percent or two children experiment with it right now.

    Its the passion of people like Rene that makes a huge difference to the world. Let us work to that and do our little bit by making Vatsalya a true example of One Laptop per Child.
