Teacher uses tech to make learning more fun

Posted:

Some Central Wisconsin students are playing with some new technology in the classroom.

They are using robotic "Sphero" balls that the students control with an app.

The fifth grade classroom at Port Edwards Elementary School was one of 100 classrooms in North America that won a computer coding and programming contest.

Now, the class' teacher, Tim Martin hopes to use the new technology to help with math and science lessons.

"The kids are engaged learning and don't realize how much fun they are having," said Martin.

The students will be working with the balls to learn about time, distance, and speed.
