Searching for India's Hole in the Wall

Michael Trucano, World Bank, Jul 19, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

More evidence from Hole-In-The-Wall about what people constantly tell me is impossible - children learning on their own. "The contrast here was for me pretty stark: One the one hand, you had two computers set up outside which received minimal maintenance, and which anyone could use from 9-5 each day. There was no direction on how to use this equipment, but that didn't stop kids from figuring it out via trial and error (or, more often, from other kids). On the other hand, you had a dozen computers locked up in a school just a short walk away, gathering dust for lack of 'qualified teachers' to use them, and direct their use."
