What's interesting about this development effort in the Philippines is the combination of internet, pedagogy and hardware. "Schools covered by the program receive a) infrastructure support and free internet for 2 years, b) Project-Based Learning and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) training for teachers, and c) a GFS mobile cart, which contains gadgets like netbooks, tablets, projectors, and Globe Prepaid Pocket WiFi that can be used to teach different subjects both inside and outside the classroom." I think it's a step forward to realize that simply using computers in a traditional classroom will not result in the best benefits from the technology.
