It makes learning fun and has been adopted in 42 countries around the world.
It's called Osmo Game, and is a technology program designed to use on an iPad and make learning easier for students ages 5 to 13.
Now one Hysham Elementary teacher is giving her students a hands-on approach to use the program.
That's why Stephanie Schultz is this week's One Class at a Time recipient of a $300 grant from Q2 and First Interstate Bank.
Her students are learning spatial recognition, mathematics, language, and problem solving skills through Osmo, but to get all hands on this program the students will need a few more Osmo kits.
"I have rotating students who use the program when they are done for the day,” said Hysham Elementary School teacher Stephanie Schultz. “It's kind of a rewards incentive for them to get their work done first of all, then they can work on the different games like drawing, working on numbers, word games and tangrams. So there is a lot of tactile learning and visual learning with this technology."
