Coding, sequencing, animation, calculations, design, investing, visual/perceptual challenges, cooperation, and collaboration are just a few of the incredible skills that will be emphasized daily with the OSMO hands-on "twist" to using technology. These programs will be used as STEAM centers. I am especially excited to include the OSMO Pizza Co. into my lessons on currency as students will be able to design, build and grow a Pizza Co. They will calculate change and invest profits. What a fantastic way to teach students about the importance of currency and how to manage a business. This is real-life taking place in 2nd grade! Another amazing program is the OSMO Creative that encourages imagination by bringing drawings to life with animation. I can see the future through the eyes of my excited students. Go STEAM, with Team Technology!
