US: Students asked to teach the teachers ... video games

When the principal of Blair Elementary School needed someone to instruct teachers in the use of PlayStations, she turned to the experts -- the students.

The school purchased 23 PlayStations last month to use with educational games for third- through fifth-graders.

But not all the teachers took to the video games -- one became so flustered that she didn't want use them in class, principal Sharon Sand said.

So on Wednesday, students gave advice on plugging in the machines, using the software and navigating the buttons.

Not all the teachers needed the help, but many did.

"They're illiterate when it comes to this," Sand said.

The school has spent about $20,000 in federal money on the machines and games that reinforce the state's standard course of study, she said.
