Someone asked me “Do you think giving smartphones and tabs to school teachers , students and government officials, a good answer ?”
My answer was ” It depends on the answer you are seeking ”
Yes, you may solve the accessibility problem. May be that will help the receiver be more connected. But with out training on content and tools ( let’s say apps) most of them will drift off to the vast ocean of interesting stuff like social media. Desired things like productivity and creativity doesn’t come easy. Internet is full of easy stuff.
Judgment and knowledge on hygiene while on internet are crucial. May be we all need it.
