Since first hearing about it a few years ago I have been interested in the $100 laptop concept as well as one-to-one learning. This is when we will truly see changes in the way students are educated using technology. We're making baby steps toward it now but the availability of the laptop will make using it a non-issue. It will be a given.
Now you can view this Google Tech Talk which describes the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) movement and the XO (formerly $100?) computer. The interesting thing about OLPC is its focus on education and learning not technology. I've been pushing this concept forever, but it seems that no matter what, the discussion in this district always comes back to hardware, software, standardization. Learning is often a secondary topic in educational technology. Watch the video - it's an amazing sounding device.
