Staying connected at a distance
On Monday morning, Mary Kate Bigelow and her third-grade classmates were hard at work unscrambling words. But while Mary Kate could see the other students and hear the chatter of the classroom, she couldn't turn and whisper with a friend. Couldn't ask for help or share a joke.
Mary Kate was miles away from the rest of the students, sitting in front of a small white laptop computer in her Rosemount home.
