HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ Hutchinson teachers are going high-tech
with their classroom lectures.
Starting this school year, they will make their lectures available as podcasts so students can upload the material after class and watch it on their ipods.
Students can check out i-Pods if they don't have one. The district bought 20 new ones. For now, school officials want to gear the project around students who struggle with classwork and might benefit from
repeated views of the lectures.
Elementary, middle school and high school kids all will get to use the technology. But high schoolers are the main focus. The district spent more than 25-thousand dollars on equipment for the podcasts. The money came from a bond issue passed several years ago for technology.
