Ray Nephew’s seventh-grade English class at Oyler School is about as high-tech as it gets. Every student has a laptop to use. On one wall, a device turns his whiteboard into an interactive touch screen. A 32-inch “coffee table” computer sits idle against another wall, covered with a cloth.
“That thing is malfunctioning,” Nephew says.
Nephew explains that it is a great tool — when the computer works.
"It’s just another way for kids to be engaged," he says.
