WEST RUTLAND — Sixth-grader Dylan Shambo doesn't have a computer at home, but now he has one of his own at school.
Dylan was one of 17 West Rutland School pupils in Nancy Burke-Bruno's class to get an introduction to new laptops and digital recording devices Friday afternoon.
The electronics are from a partnership between the school and the Manchester Center-based nonprofit organization Digital Wish. The aim of the program is to put new learning tools into students' hands and make them more technologically savvy and better employees for Vermont's future.
