The $10 computer for education?

One of the first ever posts on the World Bank EduTech blog was about a purported US$10 computer for education in India. While the hype around that effort has considerably cooled, efforts to provide a $10 educational computer have not gone totally cold. PlayPower is exploring such a device -- and you may be surprised at how they are going about it.
As Derek Lomas explains in the accompanying video, one of the ways that PlayPower is able to cut costs is to utilize a technology available even in some of the poorest communities in developing countries -- a television.
