I ran into a special article on "The Hole in the Wall Project", a book written by Professor Mitra, who works in the areas of cognitive science, information science and educational technology, and he has a keen interest in engineering and software development:

Quote: "In early 1999, some colleagues and I sunk a computer into the opening of a wall near our office in Kalkaji, New Delhi. The area was located in an expansive slum, with desperately poor people struggling to survive. The screen was visible from the street, and the PC was available to anyone who passed by.

Prachtig te lezen dat kinderen een natuurlijke nieuwsgierigheid en drang tot leren en ontdekken hebben. Interessant zou zijn te onderzoeken wat dit betekent voor leerprocessen op scholen.
