A charity organization gave tablet computers to children in two Ethiopian villages.The children had never seen written words before.The organization wanted to see if the children could learn to read by using only a tablet.
HOW DID THEY DO?
Amazing!After only two weeks, they were singing the ABC song.That's not all they learned.The organization installed software to stop the children from changing the screen background.The children hacked it!When a technician visited them, the children all had personalized backgrounds!
In a few years, these kids might be developing the next Facebook!
