Students at Brownsburg’s Reagan Elementary School used to get in trouble if they were caught in class playing with a hand-held gaming device.
Now, at least one class of high-ability fourth- and fifth-graders not only is encouraged to use Sony PlayStation Portables, but each student is provided with the increasingly essential learning tool.
Two instructors, Chris Chadd and Robbie Grimes, began the innovative approach to education this year. They believe schools need to get away from traditional teaching methods to reach today’s students, who never knew life before the Internet.
