Flip, Skype and iPad find everyday usage in Lisa Boeglin’s class at Scott Elementary » Evansville Courier & Press


Flip, Skype and iPad find everyday usage in Lisa Boeglin’s class at Scott Elementary » Evansville Courier & Press.

Boeglin and her class Skype twice a week. Local authors read their books over it. Parents join in “Happy Birthday” songs because of it. A girl even met her newborn brother over it.

The girl’s father Skyped from the hospital less than two hours after her brother was born.

Boeglin also uses Skype for her “Math Problem of the Week.” A guest gives the children a math problem that relates to a real issue — I have three cans of corn and she has one. How many do we have together? — and the children Skype their answer two days later.
