New learning tools at Pittsburg Primary

PITTSBURG, TX (KLTV) - Gone are the days of just using chalk and black boards when it comes to learning. Some East Texas 1st graders are going high tech.

Pittsburg Primary students showed off their new leaning tool: an interactive white board. The 1st graders used the giant digital screen to teach interactive math lessons

Students even used the board to check the weather on a popular news website, but that's not the only favorite feature they found.

"Math, calendars, and we always watch a movie," said Cynthia Gomez, a 1st grader.

"They get to do all those different things with the board and as you saw it's so amazing to me that they remember every time they go up there what they can do and if I forget they're sure to tell me," said Angela Brotherton, a teacher.

Students also use the board to learn vocabulary lessons, and of course, get in some time to play games.
