Negroponte, founder of MIT Media Lab, leads a talk on the last 30 years of technology. He also introduces his newest project – “One Laptop per Child”. Negroponte states that he has a desire to create wireless laptop computers that cost around $100 and see that they are given out to children in developing countries.
We aim to provide each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop. To this end, we have designed hardware, content and software for collaborative, joyful, and self-empowered learning. With access to this type of tool, children are engaged in their own education, and learn, share, and create together. They become connected to each other, to the world and to a brighter future.
