Otevřený dopis Nicholasi Negroponte: Jde o vzdělání ne o laptopy

Education, Not Laptops

Stop calling OLPC a project or initiative. It is no longer a short-term project but a global movement. OLPC should change its business model to reflect this. It should become the Learning Innovations organization. Do the R&D on kids, education, and technology that Everex, Asus, and Intel can't or won't do.

Killer App for Education

I firmly believe that every device and technology needs a "killer app," that is a tool so effective that most people can't remember how they lived without it. The killer app for the PC was e-mail. For some people, Skype was the killer app that made them choose broadband Internet. Laptops lack a killer app for education.

I can name that killer app for the XO right now, English literacy. If kids and adults can consistently use a laptop to learn English, laptops will forever become a standard part of education.

Jak na Google Earth

One Laptop Per Child, Classmate PC a jiné projekty

Koncept „stodolarového“ notebooku vyburcoval konkurenci a existuje již celá řada podobných řešení. Kombinace AMD + Linux = OLPC sice zaostala za předpokládaným boomem a místo očekávaných milionů OLPC se zatím vyrobily a distribuovaly jen statisíce. Komerční úspěch ale zaznamenal konzervativnější subnotebook ASUS Eee PC a první modely konceptu Intel s názvem Classmate PC se dodávají do vietnamských škol. Celý článek naleznete na serveru Česká škola.
