    Retirement. How does it feel? And how do you pay for it?

    Lizzie O'Leary talks about the psychology of retirement with Nancy Schlossberg, the author of Revitalizing Retirement: Reshaping Your Identity, Relationships, and Purpose.

    "Especially for men and women who are highly invested in their work, who love what they're doing, the thought of retirement creates some anxiety," Schlossberg says. 

    For financial advice, Lizzie turns to Rhonda Schaffler, the editor-at-large at TheStreet and anchor of TheStreet TV.

    "You should have about 70 percent of the income that you had while you were working, so that means your expenses have to come down because you will have less money," Schaffler says. "And that, by the way, is assuming you have saved enough money. So it's a very delicate balance, and we've seen in study after study that most people aren't getting it right."

    As more schools hand more kids laptops and tablets all sorts of things can happen — many of them unexpected, many of them very expensive, and many of them pretty funny, too.

    In this humorous, animated look inside the digital classroom, Marketplace explores the way a simple piece of technology can kick off a snowballing sequence of events for teachers, students, parents, IT departments and just about everyone else who has to get involved if you give a kid a laptop.
