and information then was available in 1954, and we also have
more technological advances, so a learning and teaching machine
would be even more advanced then originally intended.
PLATO (computer system)
was the first generalized
computer assisted instruction system
. Starting in 1960, it ran on the
University of Illinois' ILLIAC I computer. By the late 1970s, it supported
several thousand graphics terminals distributed worldwide, running on
nearly a dozen different networked mainframe computers.
Q and A
is learning material in a
kind of textbook or teaching machine or computer. The medium presents the
material in a logical and tested sequence
. The text is in small steps or
larger chunks. After each step, learners are given a question to test
their comprehension. Then immediately the correct answer is shown. This
means the learner at all stages makes responses, and is given immediate
knowledge of results.
(CBL) is the
term used for any kind of learning with the help of computers.
Computer-based learning makes use of the interactive elements of the
computer applications and software and the ability to present any type of
media to the users. Computer-based learning has many benefits, including
the advantage of users

subject in the case of computer-based learning, and it is also available
all the time. Computer-based learning is cost effective in many ways, as
it reduces travel time and also the same application can be used to teach
new students or users. The learning also offers safety and flexibility as
well as helps learners to track their progress. Another big advantage is
in the reduction of overall training time.

Once a child,
parent, teacher or student learns how to use the computer they could then
educate themselves and learn in their own chosen environment. Then of
course anyone who learns how to operate the computer can eventually teach
other people, children, teachers or parents on how to use the computer to
educate themselves and others. Self replicating, self perpetuating, self
regulating and constantly updating. And when a person learns how to build
other similar computers from parts, then the delivery mechanism for

(SMT) is a method for producing electronic

called a surface-mount device (SMD). In the industry it has largely
replaced the through-hole technology construction method of fitting
components with wire leads into holes in the circuit board. Both
technologies can be used on the same board, with the through-hole
technology used for components not suitable for surface mounting such as
large transformers and heat-sinked power semiconductors. An SMT component
is usually smaller than its through-hole counterpart because it has either
smaller leads or no leads at all. It may have short pins or leads of
various styles, flat contacts, a matrix of solder balls (BGAs), or
terminations on the body of the component.

components, software and accessories. Components
would be the manufacture setup. Once I have a
Laptop that is a clear example of what this PC should have and
how this PC should operate, I will then look for
and volunteers to
help distribute the Laptops to everyone who needs them, starting
with the less fortunate people who have limited means or have
limited access to good schools, which happens to be almost every
human on the planet. Sponsoring a child just took on a new
definition. And if each person who receives the PC promises to
share it with others we can help educate more people even
would be training thousands of teachers and
people how to use and maintain each PC. Then those people would
train other people how to use and maintain the PC. Each person
who receives training would receive their own PC and repeat the
process. A test, similar to a drivers license test would be used
to determine if a person is allowed to operate and own this PC.
Of course this is just a guideline to help deter theft and abuse
and will most likely be modified depending on the needs of
people. Each person who receives this PC must also fully
understand the responsibilities that come with having an
extremely important and powerful tool. Some of the first people
to get these laptops will be teachers so they can use the PC as
a teaching tool. Teachers would also be able to determine what
students would benefit the most from having their own laptop.
Mothers will also be first in line to receive these laptops.
Mothers know the importance of education and deeply care about
their children and their future. I will also work on a
or a test that would help pick out the best
candidates so that anyone with a thirst for knowledge can
receive a laptop that would help advance their learning
capabilities. But of course it will take more then a pledge or a
promise for children to do the right thing because some children
and lack the abilities to learn or have
no willingness to learn and possess very little
. So children who are eager to learn and who
self-discipline will be the
favorable candidates for
these laptops, though it will not be a prerequisite.

but that's only when technology is used effectively and efficiently. Technology can save time, but

. So the problem is not technology, the problem is
education. We need an education that teaches students effective
ways on how to use technology effectively, efficiently and
. People need to understand what technology is,
and what technology isn't.
Remember ‘Technology’ is just a tool
. The major problem with
is that there are
not enough qualified people who are skilled enough to know how
to use technology effectively and efficiently or is there enough
experienced people who have enough skills to teach others how to
use technology effectively and efficiently. And of course this
means that there are not enough knowledgeable people to fully
understand the potential of technology, or know when to implement
its use. Just like any tool, if it’s not used properly it will
not help. And if you don’t
teach people how to use tools
, then those tools will be wasted just like every other tool
in human history. We train and educate people so that they can
drive cars safely and productively. So who’s training people how
to use computers and cell phones safely and productively? And
people are wasting technology or misusing and
, this does not mean that it’s not helping
civilization. So technology by itself cannot fix our enormous
problems like poverty, starvation and education. Incompetence is
not the fault of technology, it is the fault of poorly educated
humans. And to use technology to say that technology is not
helping is not just
, it’s completely ignorant. Don’t blame the
tool or the technology. Blame our education system that fails to
teach students basic skills, knowledge and proper behavior. A
laptop can’t teach everything to a child, but it can help teach a
child who has no teacher or no school, as long as they know how
to use the PC effectively and efficiently.
It boils down to
maximizing our actions and fully understanding our best choices
and using our tools effectively.
So communicating this
information and knowledge is extremely important. You have to be
clear when showing people the ways they can help. And technology
can definitely help speed up this process. This is why every
have instructions on how to use technology effectively and
efficiently. The easy to understand instructions will be in a
video format and in writing. One of the responsibilities that
technology needs to have is to
teach the person how to solve
problems without using technology

answer, but it should also show you how the answer was obtained.

People can remember their
experiences, but they seldom remember what they have learned
. We gain knowledge all through our life,
but most people choose to remember only their experiences, and
they remember very little of what they have learned during and
in between those experiences. We are not using our brains the
way we should, just like when we misuse technology, it does more
harm then good. You inadvertently reduce the benefits of having

External Memory (psychology)
is the opposite of internal memory. When
a person uses something beside his/her own internal memory tricks, traits,
or talents to help him/her remember certain events, facts, or even things
to do, the person is using an external memory aid. External memory aids
are used every day. A large part of these aids come from technology;
people use their smartphones to remind them when they have meetings and
Facebook reminds people of their friends' birthdays. These aids also
include taking notes in class, carrying a grocery list to the supermarket,
or jotting down dates on a planner. Even people, or prompters, can be used
as external memory aids. Try not to
: Our dependence on smart technology has led to a
paradox. As the technology improves, it becomes more reliable and more
efficient. And because it’s reliable and efficient, human operators start
to depend on it even more. Eventually they lose focus, become distracted,
and check out, leaving the system to run on its own. This is fine until
something unexpected happens. The unexpected reveals the value of human
beings; what we bring to the table is the flexibility to handle new
situations. Machines aren’t collaborating in pursuit of a joint goal; they
are merely serving as tools. So when the human operator gives up
oversight, the system is more likely to have a serious accident.

human beings is oversight—just being there in case something goes terribly
wrong. The big danger today is that no one has access to all the knowledge
necessary to understand and control modern sophisticated technology. And

that cell phones are not a useful and valuable tool, I’m just

that our knowledge and information needs to be accurate,

To say that technology does not replace teachers is a misleading
and ignorant statement. That's like saying books don't replace
teachers. But every student knows that education consists of
reading a lot of books

and writings. And technology is just a nicer book because it's
interactive, which increases learning speed, quantity and
quality. Focus more on the knowledge and information and not
just the tools that we use to transfer knowledge and
information. Just because an ignorant society throws away
millions of cell phones and computers every year does not mean
that we are not benefiting from our
technologies, all that says is that we are still ignorant in a
lot of ways, even though we have the technologies that says we
have intelligence. Education needs to improve. Bottom line.

Technology has made a
lot of our manual tasks a whole lot easier to do and has also
made them a lot less time consuming.
We can not deny how Technology has benefited us in many
different ways. But until everyone is educated enough to use
technology effectively and efficiently we will continue to cause
more damage to ourselves and the world around us.

Learning. When people have more access to more information and
more knowledge, it generates more information and more
knowledge, so we learn more and we do more,
, or is it 'More is Law? So today we not only
have more knowledge and more information then any other time, we
also have more people who have more access to more knowledge
then any other time, and we also have more people generating
more knowledge and information then any other time. That means
if Moore's Law is correct, and looking at the last 100 years,
, we have arrived at an
of knowledge and information that is so
big that we can no longer ignore how much we know. This will be
like the great awakening, because the Power of knowledge is just
now coming into focus. We have always knew about our potential,
but we just couldn't focus enough to fully see what our lack of
wisdom kept has us from seeing. This will be a huge celebration,
but it will also be a lot of work, because even though we have
more knowledge and more information, we also have more people
who don't have access to more knowledge and more information,
this has been our blind side, our
, our lost potential, the thing that we
couldn't fully bring into focus. The speed on which we succeed
will be directly related to how fast we can deliver information
and knowledge to the people who have no access. Of course this
type of sharing will not be easy or be without problems, but at
least we'll be working on solving our problems, so this will
just be one more problem to solve. Are you ready?

I finally became aware. I realized how little I knew of myself
and how little I knew about this world.
This was my epiphany. It all made sense. Everything in life is
in someway connected to education.
All my experiences now have meaning and purpose. And
if it were
not for the internet
, and all who contributed to its vast
resources of knowledge, I would have not been able to acquire
the necessary knowledge and information that has enlightened me
and inspired me to pursue this project.
And of course the invention of the computer was the main vehicle
that helped this realization happen. Making the internet and the
computer the main catalysts that helped to spawn this epiphany.
So it only makes sense that the PC and the internet will be
major components of this project.

Since January 2009 I
have started finding information and ideas on how to improve
education that would make education more effective and
comprehensive. I have also started putting together some
Educational Resources and Websites
to help accumulate the best knowledge and information that the
world has to offer. It still shocks me that most students spend
12 years in school and come away with very little useful
knowledge. 100's of millions of students
desperately need a higher quality and a more thorough education.
Education is not just a humans most important asset, education
is the greatest instrument for Health, Happiness and Prosperity.
The sheer lack of access to a higher quality and a more thorough
education is the cause for most of the problems this world is
faced with today. Mostly because people cannot make good
decisions or make the right choices without correct sufficient
knowledge. We cannot afford to wait for schools to improve and
for our teachers to become good quality teachers. We have to use
more then one way to fix this problem. We have to use all of our
resources and abilities. Providing PC Laptops for people, filled
with knowledge, is one way to accomplish this.
I love the
One Laptop Per
but I want to take it to the next level. The One Laptop
Per Child PC is great for children of ages from 3 to 6 years old. The
Classmate PC is great for children ages of 6 to 10 years old. Both of
these PC's have great qualities and have opened the door to some really
great ideas on how a Laptop PC can help improve a child's educational
experience. But I want to make sure that we have the next generation of
Learning Laptop PC's ready. Laptops that are faster with more memory and
more capabilities so that the students hunger for knowledge and learning
are not hampered in anyway.
