Global Classroom: Hole in the Wall Education in India

This week RTÉ.ie, in association with the Simon Cumbers Media Challenge Fund, is presenting a special three part series about technology in the developing world.
This is part two of the series. Here RTÉ.ie News Editor Joe Zefran takes you to India to learn about the Hole in the Wall project which believes collective learning using a village computer can close the education gap for children around the world.
The full series covers India, Rwanda and Kenya where three programmes, including the Irish charity Camara, are using three very different approaches to achieve the same goal: educating the world's youngest citizens. It is compulsive viewing.
The full series is viewable here.
