One Laptop for One Child

04 Aug

Apparently laptop has been considered as the symbol of knowledge revolution as recently some developing countries have planned to give each child one laptop. I saw the picture of sample laptop in Kompas previous weeks. so attracting with bright color.

i wonder what the children do with the lappy? oh probably they will be literate earlier as they will use the lappy for writing something.

or they will generate their ideas in more organized way, meaning that they can think clearly thus they will lead their lives in more organized way too  or

they will be a good writer, or….

i think why isn’t the lappy installed to internet… dunno, i wonder what the lappy will be useful for children.

    Simplistically speaking, nothing’s so wrong about it. It’s just another evolution of the so called “child’s toy”. In our “younger years”, we had robots, barbie dolls, heli with remote control, and then changed from sega to playstation-3, from ipod to itunes, from cassette tape to DVD, and so forth. Technology rapidly grows along with these babies. This laptop is just another kind of toy to play by children. And of course there’s a lot more to come! Why bothers?😉

    hmm………..probably because i prefer children to go out and play, explore the nature, socialize with their friends, taking a deep breath of oxygen than paralyzed before the laptop. once the children are introduced to playstation and such, they are not prove to be more intelligent or better children, rather they become more isolated from their surrounding. n…. i dont like seeing children with glasses….he3x, you know, the earlier you are exposed to computer the earlier you use glassess (perhaps).
    then i think children are probably “trapped” by adults’ demands and dreams, of the dreams to have and to see the “computer literate” children in their very early age which is not that necessary i suppose. let them go out and play !!!

    hehehe…if you say so, then just do so. Then it’s just a matter of preference. To play around with laptop indoor or to play around in the playground outdoor is a matter of choice. If you think it’s good for you, then it’s good for you. If you think it’s bad, then it’s bad. What matters with these tech-aware parents is their commitment with balance. Both indoor and outdoor activities are similarly beneficial in its own way. There will be no “good” if there’s no “bad”. It’s just a matter of good combination between the two that might work for every single individual. That’s it😉
