Rural schoolchildren to receive tablet computers

Dear all,

An interesting article by SciDev on piloting of tablet computers powered
by solar microchips are being trialled in rural schools in India:

It raises some key issues of how introducing technology too early can impede
learning. Trials are being conducted to see how young people interact with
the technology.
