Big educational laptop and tablet projects — Ten countries to learn from
Recent headlines from places as diverse as Kenya (“6,000 primary schools picked for free laptop project”) and California (“Los Angeles plans to give 640,000 students free iPads”) are just two announcements among many which highlight the increasing speed and scale by which portable computing devices (laptops, tablets) are being rolled out in school systems all over the world. Based on costs alone — and the costs can be very large! — such headlines suggest that discussions of technology use in schools are starting to become much more central to educational policies and planning processes in scores of countries, rich and poor, across all continents.
