Utilize technology to promote learning in developing countries

Sebastian Thrun has disrupted traditional education with his new online learning organization, Udacity. Udacity leverages new technology in order to make education more accessible via the web.

Udacity is one of many examples of how education can be amplified with technology. Recently tablet computers were left in an unmarked box outside of a remote Ethiopian village. Within weeks, children were singing the alphabet songs included with the tablet’s software, and within months the tablets had been hacked to allow modification. Examples like these show how feasible it is to deliver a first world education to third world countries.
