Bill Gates believes that PCs deliver to children in schools does not work

The issue of improving the quality of around the world has often been related to the integration of technology into the hands of children, with various initiatives to bring low-cost PCs to areas at risk, or implement methodologies based in this type of equipment to make a class more interactive.

However, Bill Gates, co-founder and former CEO of Microsoft, today dedicated to philanthropy, said in an interview: “Just give people devices has a horrible history. What you need to do is change the curriculum and the teacher. “

Despite this, Gates did not rule out the use of such devices in class, noting that to be done, not work on devices that do not have a physical keyboard as a tablet, because students not only want to read things, but also must write and communicate. “So it will be more in the environment of PCs, will be a low-cost pc which will allow them (students) to be highly interactive,” he concluded.

Questioning the use of computers in education is something that gives for an interesting discussion, especially if we read it from someone so involved in the computer industry, like Bill Gates.
