  27. 27. Teachers’ opinion of the "Conectar Igualdad" Progr  “I think it is excellent as it tries to bridge the gap between those who have access to technology and those who have not. The investment has been incredibly important for Argentina.”  “It can be very useful if teachers can use them correctly and to improve learning.”  “What I have learnt from some colleagues is that both programs are working really well. They have become an innovative and more attractive source for students to learn their subjects.” Prof. Liliana Simón 27
  28. 28.  “I think it's very useful and it helps students connect with technology and different varieties of classwork. The problem with the laptops is that most of the children do not know how to use them. They barely touch any of the Office tools because they haven't acquired the habit to do so, and it's become very frustrating to see them playing "counter stricke" with their classmates, completely unaware you've just entered the classroom. When I first heard about this program I remember I thought "Great! Technology has reached the classroom!", but unfortunately, we seem to be experiencing a very long-term process ahead of us. On the bright side, I see students bonding with the laptop, which builds some sense of curiosity in them. It's been almost three years now, so I imagine it's just a matter of time for students to start realising how important is a tool such as a computer for them, and how empowering it can make them.”Prof. Liliana Simón 28
