  • The Indian government has unveiled the prototype of an iPad-like touch-screen laptop, with a price tag of $35 (£23), which it hopes to roll out next year.

    Aimed at students, the tablet supports web browsing, video conferencing and word processing, say developers.

  • Excellent blog post by Bob Esty, one of the virtual participants in the Flat Classroom Workshop 2010!

    "Was being a virtual attendee the same as being there? No. it was a small workshop, and those who were there were able to interact much more easily and fully than I as a virtual participant. The audio at times was hard to follow, and the web cam struggled to resolve the display screen with any clarity. But, was being a virtual attendee worth it? Definitely yes! Julie and the other workshop organizers clearly put a lot of time and effort to make it possible to attend virtually, and I got a lot out of it. I think the point of virtual participation is to make it possible to take part, not to replace the experience of being there. And the choice for me was virtual participation, or no participation at all. I would definitely encourage others to attend conferences virtually when it is not possible to be there in person."

Hi Julie, how did the Flat Classroom Workshop go? Interesting sites that you have shared. Hope the Indian hardware might reduce the digital divide as it is certainly cheap enough in comparison to an iPad. Hope you have time for holidays now!
