Minn. educators: Classroom technology should survive budget cuts

Every student at Oak-Land Junior High School in Lake Elmo gets a laptop to use in class and take home at night. Here teacher Katy Pupungatoa, left, helped ninth-graders Victoria Amundson, Meghan Jacobson and Laura Ruiz connect a laptop to an acceleration sensor during a class on Newton’s second law of motion.
