MASL 2014: New Reality of Literacy

  1. 1. The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; 5 Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, 10
  2. 2. And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. 15 I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. 20
  3. 3. “I THOUGHT THE KIDS WOULD PLAY WITH THE BOXES. WITHIN FOUR MINUTES, ONE KID NOT ONLY OPENED THE BOX, FOUND THE ON-OFF SWITCH … POWERED IT UP. WITHIN FIVE DAYS, THEY WERE USING 47 APPS PER CHILD, PER DAY. WITHIN TWO WEEKS, THEY WERE SINGING ABC SONGS IN THE VILLAGE, AND WITHIN FIVE MONTHS, THEY HAD HACKED ANDROID,” NEGROPONTE SAID. “SOME IDIOT IN OUR ORGANIZATION OR IN THE MEDIA LAB HAD DISABLED THE CAMERA, AND THEY FIGURED OUT THE CAMERA, AND HAD HACKED ANDROID.” SOURCE: http://www.technologyreview.com/news/506466/given-tablets-but-no-teachers-ethiopian-children-teach-themselves/
