RTÉ: Special Series on Technology in the Developing World

All this week RTÉ are presenting a special news series, Global Classroom, on technology in the developing world, in particular Kenya, India, and Rwanda.

Three approaches to educating young members of these communities are reported on:
  • the charity Camara who hold a computer skills workshop in Kenya,
  • the Hole in the Wall project in India which believes collective learning using a village computer can close the education gap for children around the world,
  • and finally the One Laptop Per Child initiative which a school in Rwanda hopes to implement.
Clips, blogs, and reports can be accessed from the RTÉ website, here.
