South Range schools cut costs with technology

NORTH LIMA

South Range School District has continued to incorporate technology to make cuts in its materials and supplies budget.

First-grade teacher Lisa Fullerton uses her room’s Elmo projector, which can show videos, interactive situations with problems, and class work, for everyday work with her students.

We “always use it for introduction [to new teachings] because technology hooks the kids,” she said.

Fullerton added that this introduction is at the kids’ “peak interest and [this] hooks them into the lesson.”

The students would shout out, “You have to press play!” if the video didn’t start playing right away, leading Fullerton to say that the students are quick to know what’s going on with the technology.

On top of the laptop and computer tablet carts throughout the three schools, this projector has led to cuts in the district’s materials and supplies budget, such as paper and printer supplies, toner and ink and everyday use on the machines, Superintendent Dennis Dunham said.
