What happens when you drop a bunch of boxed Android tablets, without instructions or training, in the midst of illiterate, non-English-speaking Ethiopian kids who have never even seen an on/off switch?  Do they use them to boost themselves to be able reach into the well?  Do they throw them at marauding hyenas?

No.
