N-B Video: BHS teacher redefines "home"work

Bluffton High School math teacher Jill Bollenbacher shows members of the Bluffton-Harrison school board how she uses an iPad, after the district provided the devices to all its teachers, to connect with and teach students — even when she is home. During the Monday school board meeting, Bollenbacher used her iPad to contact through Skype two of her students, demonstrating what she has done this year when students needed help with their pre-calculus work. Bollenbacher and kindergarten teacher Lindsey Fry both presented to board members how they used the technology to help teach their curriculums. To learn more about the presentations — and the future of technology in the Bluffton-Harrison district — see the Tuesday, Nov. 15, News-Banner. (Video by Chet Baumgartner)
