RT @firstname.lastname@example.org A bold experiment: In 2012, boxes with laptops were dropped off in two villages in Ethiopia. Taped shut. No instructions. Kids from these villages opened the boxes. Kids who hadn't seen written text before. Here’s what happened👇
Within 4 minutes, they found the on-off switch and powered it up
Within 5 days, they were using 47 apps per kid, per day
Within 2 weeks, they were singing ABC songs in the village
Within 5 months, they had hacked Android
No school. No teacher. No textbook.
What can we learn from this?
Kids have a natural desire to learn
Sometimes, all they need is access, time, and space
Sometimes, all we need to do is stay out of the way
“If they can learn to read, then they can read to learn”
