Delhi children make play of the Net

Author: JT Smith

Reported at BBC News: "In the slums of Delhi, an experiment has shown how illiterate street
children can quickly teach themselves the rudiments of computers
and the internet.

The aim of the experiment, funded by the Indian Government, local
institutions and the World Bank was to see what role computers
might play in educating India's illiterate millions.

The results were startling, showing how much children with little or
no English and no computer training at all could achieve."
