OSMO

Osmo is a first of its kind play/learning system for the iPad. Osmo has a little device that projects the front facing camera down to your desktop. Using blocks, letter tiles and other objects you can interact with the apps that Osmo offers for free.


Currently Osmo is $99 and will ship to you in October.


Also, new this year is the ability to GIFT a kit to a teacher of your choice.


IDEA: If two people get together and each put in $50 and then gift a kit to one of you. You will each get one for $50.


The catch is each school is only allowed 5 gift kits.


Watch the video below of the new game NUMBERS.

Osmo Numbers

NEW! Hands-on Play with Numbers

Kids arrange physical tiles, including dots and digits, to make numbers and complete levels. Add by putting more tiles, subtract by removing tiles and multiply by connecting tiles together. Experimenting becomes fast and intuitive.

WHEN YOU BUY A GENIUS KIT, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GIFT A KIT TO A TEACHER FOR FREE.

MESSAGING APP

This app came out Thursday night and I put it on all my kids devices. I was able to send voice messages or regular text to them. Friday my daughter sent me a text she was getting on the bus. It is really cool.


This could become a great app to connect with your students. You could send them voice message feedback about their school work or send them a text about getting back on task.

If everyone had a device that is.
