An Indiana juvenile prison in northern Indiana is using new technology in its classrooms to keep students engaged.

The SMART boards, or interactive white boards, were introduced to the Logansport Juvenile Corrections Facility classrooms about a month ago, and now are used in nearly every classroom.

Teacher John Morphew tells the Pharos-Tribune he has his students solve math puzzles taken from online education sites. During one recent class, several students took turns going up to the board to solve equations. Morphew also used the board's "flip charts" to drag equations on and off of the screen.

Special education coordinator Stuart Barney says it's engaging for the students when they get to use technology in the classroom.
