A Good Read

One of my favourite previous Professors at Brock University, Dr. Camille Rutherford, makes a good point in her post entitled At the Intersection of Education and Technological Innovation about how education and technology are developing. I love the video about The Hole in the Wall and how the kids learned all about the computer's capacity despite knowing very little English, the language of the computer. Yes, with the generosity of some great companies and agencies who have purchased computers for the second and third world countries they have taken strides to better educate the world technologically. But what next? ...keep giving them more advanced apps; learn from them; allow them to create; let them teach others about the knowledge they have gained...and on it goes. What do you think?
