David Brantley is a teacher at Cumberland Elementary. An otherwise normal guy, Brentley is the first school teacher in his district (and many others we suspect) to realize that the Wii's forecast and news globe could be a great learning tool in the classroom, engaging students more than traditional maps. As Brantley puts it:
We do everything that's traditionally done...But as soon as we've done a little bit and they know it, we can turn around and make it a game and have fun.
The investment for a Wii is just $250, which even under tight school budgets, is probably not much less attainable than a new standard globe.
