This paper presents both a new development and a project opportunity by exploring the potential impact of technology on children in crisis situations. 37 million children in conflict zones are missing their entire education and that their countries thus face the risk of continuing in poverty and conflict. Although various technologies have been used to equip remote and rural schools, including computers with internet connections, satellite receivers, televisions, stand-alone computers and curriculum related multimedia learning resources (MOE, 2003) we believe that such efforts could be better coordinated and leveraged in much the same way the $100 Laptop initiative has. Specifically we report on initial findings of a needs analysis of refugee camps of the stranded Pakistanis in Bangladesh and suggests a solution – The Knowledge Box – so as to provide opportunities for schooling to those who have few opportunities to learn.
