A teacher in Thermopolis teaches using technology

Wyoming – Hot Springs County High school in Thermopolis is home to one of the most high tech teachers in the state. London Jenks teaches science to high school students based on technology. They log their notes and comments on an interactive chat room, they use a number of ipod applications and other types of technology courtesy of Google. In fact, this month Jenks, who is a Knowles Science Teaching Foundation fellow, will join other teachers from around the globe as part of Google's teacher academy. The goal is for Jenks to educate other teachers how to use technology in the classroom. Jenks joins Bob Beck to explain how learning is different in his classroom.
