OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A report released Thursday says Oklahoma is above the national average in the use of technology. The "Technology Counts 2007" report in Education Week gives the state an overall grade of "B-" compared to the national average of "C+."

The report gives Oklahoma a "C" in student access to technology and an "A-" in the use of technology. And the state gets a "B-" in its capacity to use technology.

The report says there is one computer for every 3 1/2 students in Oklahoma schools and one high-speed Internet connection for every 3.4 students.

The report was put together by the Editorial Projects in Education Research Center.
