Video: If you give a kid a laptop
As more schools hand more kids laptops and tablets all sorts of things can happen — many of them unexpected, many of them very expensive, and many of them pretty funny, too.
In this humorous, animated look inside the digital classroom, Marketplace explores the way a simple piece of technology can kick off a snowballing sequence of events for teachers, students, parents, IT departments and just about everyone else who has to get involved if you give a kid a laptop.
