Multiple Mice for Computers in Education in Developing Countries

Udai Pawar, Joyojeet Pal, Kentaro Toyama
2006 2006 International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies and Development  
It is not unusual to see more than five children crowding around a single display, as schools are rarely funded to afford one PC per child in a classroom.  ...  The obvious technical solution is to provide each child with a mouse and cursor on screen, thus effectively multiplying the amount of interaction per student per PC for the cost of a few extra mice.  ...  In this context, it may be that a one-to-many ratio of PCs to students is actually desirable in an educational context, provided that every student has some control over what is happening on screen.  ...
