Illiterate Kids In India Figure Out Computers
from the interesting-experiments dept
A very interesting article about an experiment in India where people set up an outdoor computer near slums. Illiterate kids found the computers and started playing with them. They figured out what was going on pretty quickly, and it didn’t take them long to figure out how to connect to the internet, draw pictures, download MP3s and games. Everywhere they set up one of these computers the results were almost exactly the same.
