Little gains found when adding notebooks alone to classrooms
When the One Laptop per Child or OLPC program kicked off years ago that idea was to provide cheap notebooks to developing countries to help improve education children receive. Over the years, many developing nations have purchased the OLPC notebooks in big quantities. A new study has been published recently looked at 319 primary schools improved over the course of 15 months.

The study found no correlation of improvements on math and language test scores since OLPC notebooks have been in classrooms. The study also claims that the notebooks didn't lead children to spending more time learning or reading either. However, the study admits the children are now more comfortable with basic computing tasks such as word processing and have demonstrated increased cognitive abilities.
