Josh Pulsifer ’06 In the classroom, on the stage, or above the field— Jeff Christenbury ’03 and Josh Pulsifer ’06 connect TA to the world through live streaming Anyone visiting or attending Thornton Academy doesn’t have to look too far to understand the school's innovative commitment to technology. One example of why Thornton has been named an Apple Distinguished School (see p. 4) is demonstrated by the efforts of two faculty members, Jeff Christenbury ’03 and Josh Pulsifer ’06, who have been instrumental in broadcasting events live from the school’s classrooms, athletic fields, library, and auditorium. Live streaming began in 2010 when Jeff began teaching at TA and serving as the manager of TATV. Initially, he and the students broadcasted football games and other sporting events on Public Access Ch V266&"V禖rf&W"FV6W g&FRv&FW"&VfVBW@&WBFR66w2'&F67G2@&6VBVfb#"vFFPFVb'&F67Fr&R7'FpWfVG27V6f6ǒfF&vW2FvFW"VFV6RVfbBFP66w&VVBBF&F6FVג'FW&VBvFV禖pBFR'FB&W72W&BF'&F67BvW2ƗfRFRFW&W@g&7FFV6gGv&RvVB&RVVFVBF'&F67@WfVBBF&F( vR&&VBFR66f"FRWFRWVVBBFR7V'67&F6W'f6R( 6BVfb( Ė#B@#RvR&VǒFfbB7F'FV@'&F67Fr6'G2bWfVG2W&PB66( FW&Rv26VV2F&P6RGRb7GVFVB7FfGVWFr'G2W&f&6R"7'FrWfV@B66v6W2BV7FfFV"vVVǒ66VGVR( vR7F'FV@vF6V"76V&ǒBw&GVFF6RvW&RW"f'7B7'FpWfVG2BFW&RvW&R6R77VW0F&Rv&VBWB'WBvVvRvW&Pf6VBvRB&RF6WPFW6BfWw2( Ю( vRw&RBBrvW&RFPVƗG2fW'vBBvRw&R&RF&V6&BFR'&F67G2f"UGV&R@6V2vRfR7&Wrb&F7GVFVG2Bf7VGvv&&Fg&BbFR6W&B&VBFP66VW2( 6BVfbbFR7GVFVG2v&RpV&VBBDw&WrWvF6rFPV&ǒ'&F67G2BRBvVFWV&VBvW&RVvW"F&V6P'BbFR&GV7FFV( 66&7Ff&( 2RbW"vFwW0BgFV&fFW26"6VF'f"bFR7'FrWfVG2( Ч6B6( 7BbFR7GVFVG27F'@v&r&VBFR6W&'WBgFVw&GVFRF"7FfFW2( ХFRDEbFV6VFW27W'&V@7GVFVG22vV2VBFPVgFV7B2VF'2f FR7GVFVG2GW"6F&WGFR(  btEr6V2( W&fV7@WRb6VRv26PF&VvFR&w&vRfbF6VvRBrv&2f"6VF6( 6BVfb( ĆRw2&VVw&VBB7F6W2FDFVvFFR7GVFVG2BFR'&F67G2( ФVfbB6&FFV6FPFV6wBWrVFFW'FVBBF&FBFWfP6'&FVB7V7G2bFR'&F67@Vfb6&7FV'W'( 0( W"676W2&V6VFǒ7&VFVB7F6ƖFRF&FRƗfR7G&VWfVBvPvW&RFrf6V&( 6B6( vR6VBFR&W7BRg&672FfVBB6ƖvFǒBFB&V6P'BbFRGfW'F6rB'BbFP'&F67BFRG2&Rv2F&V@F6VRFV"v&W6VB( ХFRWVVB2vWGFr&WGFW"@&WGFW"BFR66WV7G2FP'&F67G2F6FVRBw&r( 0f"2rFW&R2FW"66FR7FFRbRFrFpƖRF2( 6BVfb( ŖRFwBW7BVV@FRWVVBRVVBFRVPBFR7W'BbFR66FFF2vRfRFB( Ю( ĒwfRV&Bg&VvƗfPWG6FRFR7FFRBFWfPVFVBrFWƖRFvF6V6vR( 6BWfWVB66bFRDfF&FV( FRW'0vWfVvWBFvWFW"gFW"vW2@vF6FR&W( ЦBFBw2vBvRvN( Ff'&B7FfR6W2( 6BVF7FW"&VPV&B( ( ėBw2&WGGVBvVvPV"g&V2vvWBFvWFW Fvf&FFvF6vR 66W'BW"FW&F&VG06fR66RF6VRFV"6G&VW&f&( ФVF7FW"V&BVFW'7FG2FP&RB'F6RbFR66FFR6VG( ĒF&WB&VG0Bw&G&VG2vfRFff7VGvWGFr&VBBf"FVFvF6FV"w&F6Bw2"Vv&.( 27FfGW&RB662G&VVFW2( Ф6FRFR677&FV6W'2fP6RFW6RFR'&F67G22FV6pF2BvF76W727GVFV@W&f&6R( ĒFBW2VvPFffW&V6RFRv7GVFVG26VPFV6VfW2BFV"'B( 6B6FW'&W62FV6W"B6&F&V7F"( vRvWBBWFR67&VVখFRVFF&VBFR7GVFVG2vvF6BfW"BfW"( ФVfbB6&VƗRF2Vf&V@v6FVRFw&rBW@vFFV6wBFRGvFV6W'0&R6֗GFVBFfFrFR&W7@WVVBB6gGv&Rf"FR"( f6V&ƗfR2r&V6֖pFRWrg&FW"f"W2( 6BVfb( f6V&2W6rFRW6RbfFVFV"77FVBFBw2ǒVpW2vRfW&vVBƗGFR&RF"fWvW'2f"WfW'&6WF&vRF27B6V6( ФƗfR7G&V֖r266W'fVB2vf"FR66F6V7BVGFW"vW&RFW&RFPv&B( Ē&VV&W"fWrV'2vFfB76R( RB6&6W ( RvW&RFWVBFfv7F@FvWFW"FWvF6VBRbFR7FFP66vW2( Wf6B( vRBW7BFR&VfF@7FFV( 6BVfb%FR&W70&v2v&VBf"FRFW&WB@WfW'Frv2FW&RF'&F67@FRvW2vRBWfW'FpFWVVFVB( gFW"v&rf V&ǒV"vFV禖rB06FR'&F67G2vW&RƗfPFRFW&WBBVfbB6VFW'7FBvBWVVB@#`&6W72FFV"677&2( Ė&Fw&2FW6vBFw&70672vR&R6r7GVFVG2F7&VFPFW&FBv&RW6VBGW&rFP'&F67B( 6BVfbFV6W'27GVFVG2&VG2@F֖7G&F'2fR6RF&VƗPFR'F6RbFW6R'&F67G2( FW&Rw26V6VrW&P5D%bD2%DdB$T5DХvF6ƗfR7G&V2Cf6V&6F&F6FVא#
