There was a lot of trial and error in constructing our Reglue systems. Not so much in hardware as that is subject to whatever has been donated. What we realized early on is that handing a kid their first computer with no guidance or pathway, would almost assuredly lead them to less productive websites such as Facebook or Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, etc. I mean, let’s face it…we’re talking about junior high and high school kids here for the most part, so sure, those websites are going to be a strong draw. What we needed to figure out, was a way to counter that draw and point them to more productive content.Source: The Reglue Blog: The Envelope Please…….
