‘One laptop per child’ gaining ground in India
Posted by: Justina Spencer
KOCHI: India has ‘just begun’ taking an interest in the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) global initiative that aims at providing poor children with laptops to open up a world of education to them.

“Now a number of stakeholders are beginning to demand OLPC and understand that no other computing device, either as a technology or as an embodiment of appropriate pedagogy may be as appropriate for village India as the OLPC’s XO (laptop). As a result several stakeholders have begun placing orders and budgeting for it,” OLPC India president and Chief Executive Officer Satish Jha told The Hindu when asked about the status of the project in the country.
