You, Me And The PC – A Mother's Story

I remember the first time my dad got a computer home. After endless debate between mom and him on whether we need a computer or more importantly whether our not having one was hindering their children’s growth and progress, my father one day took special permission from his boss to get his office laptop home. That evening the entire family gathered around his laptop and I logged on to the World Wide Web for the first time. After half an hour of fiddling, none of us really knew what to do with it and that was it.

Technology- Boon Or Curse?

I always use to wonder and was proud of my toddler who used to browse cartoons on YouTube like a pro.  When once I told him that there is no game on my phone, he asked me to download it from the play store and here I was looking at him amazed.  I never imagined a toddler using all these tech words and telling me as if he is teaching me and making me aware. Exposure to mobiles and ipads has made these kids a lot smarter as compared to the size of their tiny brain. And this is exactly the initiative taken by DELL as they are celebrating computer literacy week this month.

And this was their motive behind hosting a wonderful panel discussion on ‘The Gateway to New Age Learning and Overall Development of Young Children – The Personal Computer’.  The panel consisted of Sanchit Vir Gogia, Gayatri Singh, Ritu Taneja and Harpreet Sapra and was hosted by Ritu Gupta, marketing head at Dell.

Know Why Personal Computing Needs To Be Incorporated In Everyday Life!

Recently, I had an opportunity to attend a panel discussion organized by Dell in the background of Dell’s PC Literacy Days.

At a recent panel discussion on ‘PC as a gateway for learning for future generations’ organised by Dell India, experts from the fields of both, technology and education got together with the parenting community.

Combining to Conquer

Rajiv Srivastava laughed as he shared a few light moments with one of the journalists he had invited for a select press briefing on August 26. The meeting, in a roof-top conference room at the Oberoi Hotel in New Delhi, was far quieter than the glitzy product launches the Hewlett-Packard top gun usually holds in large banquet halls. But the head of the technology giant’s printing and personal systems group in India was in a joyous mood. After all, HP had become No.1 in all eight categories of its personal computer and printer businesses in India for the first time in its history.
