The One Laptop Per Child Campaign starts today! For $399.00 you can put an XO computer into the hands of a child of a developing country, and get one for yourself. Imagine the teaching possibilities! If you'd like to follow the story of a stateside XO and its donated twin, please read my blog, Reinventing PBL. Have you thought about the impact of millions of these computers going into impoverished communities? Some people worry about unanticipated negative consequences, such as theft and resale on the black market and charity that reflects western but maybe not indigenous values. What do you think? Do the benefits outweigh the risks?
