In an era of shrinking school budgets, a history teacher from Plymouth South High School is distinguishing himself as an innovative educator. He is also quite the hacker. Greg Kulowiec is saving the school district thousands while giving his freshman World Studies classes an interactive learning experience. For little more than $50, Kulowiec has built his own interactive whiteboard for his classroom. He’s also coached fellow teachers in how to assemble the modern blackboards for their own classrooms. The devices conservatively save the district at least $2,000 each. They also ensure a livelier classroom discussion on topics that might otherwise underwhelm today’s ninth-graders.
