If you visit enough classrooms at Farmington High School you'll probably see some pretty pedestrian uses of the iPads that became standard equipment for students and teachers late last December. You'll find teachers who use them sparingly if at all. You'll find students who are as likely to check their Facebook page on the devices as they are to do something that affects their education. But you'll also see some pretty interesting things.

Farmington got a lot of attention last week thanks to the actions of one high school hockey player. The reaction is not a big surprise. The video of Austin Krause's abrupt departure from the ice Feb. 12 was striking, and for many it played neatly into an ongoing narrative about What's Wrong With Kids Today. That discussion has been going on as long as there have been kids to annoy the older generation with their rock music or that newfangled fire.
