More on how kids learn language (Geek News Central)

“Current research suggests that toddlers don’t learn language one word at a time, but instead learn in chunks by storing different useages of language and cross referencing them until they confirm the context.”

My children have always spoken French and English, something that is new to my experience, therefore I’ve taken special attention watching them learn language. The above quote matches my experience, the idea that children learn linearly one word at a time is nonsense.

Be careful what you name your OLPC…

First issue that I had was getting online.


Because I’d given the OLPC and the Wi-Fi router the same name! Changed the name of the router (couldn’t work out how to change the OLPC name) and it worked in seconds.

The OLPC arrives!!!

The OLPC finally arrived on Saturday night. I’m in love, it’s a fantastic machine.

If you’ve still not got yours; pass the time reading this…
