There's *always* going to be criticism - it's education.
We all know that everyone can teach - I mean, it's easy, right?
And that everyone and their brother knows more about it than those who do it, right?
And that any time anyone actually tries to do something for others, they're going to be labelled a "do gooder" (which I still don't see as an
insult) and so on?
Overall, my take? Give it five years, *then* we'll evaluate it and see if it's had an impact. But for now? More power to people who are actually
trying to *do* something, rather than sitting around saying why it shouldn't be done.
This is the WinTel monopoly spoiler for the AMD & OpenSource based $100 laptop.
Intel and Mickey$oft do not want free software and cheap hardware (that is not Intel) being freely available in schools.
This is also a travesty of fund allocation where many children do not have clean water/ parents / shelter / food. Our school has a relationship with
a school in Uganda and it is writing paper, pencils, support to feed the orphans at the school ( and new buildings to house them ) that are the
priority. An interactive white board cost would allow us to build a whole new school in Uganda !!!!!!!!!!
