The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports on some Manatee County high school students who participated in a live teleconference with the rock star Sting’s band. Band members were helping the school promote its efforts to give every student a laptop. Sting, a former teacher, was not part of the teleconference, but he did stop by to say hello to the students. Needless to say, the experiment got these students very excited about technology. Band members, meanwhile, said it was the first time they ever visited a school without actually being there.
