Osmo is an awesome platform for learning that uses software and the camera on the iPad to provide feedback to students as they work with tactile objects in front of the screen. They have games that teach vocabulary, math, financial, problem-solving, and a host of other skills. The beauty of this is that it's not just a traditional quiz based personalized learning platform. There are real world tasks to do, with real objects, which give you multiple ways to get to the same answer. I recently brought in my son's personal Osmo system for the kids to try out and it was a huge hit! Osmo is an incredible tool for our autistic students. It allowed them to learn with authentic play in a way that worked for them. One of my favorite things to watch was those students playing Pizza Co. Pizza Company is a game that requires the user to make a pizza that suits a customer (which appears on the iPad screen), and then give them the required change. Think about the benefit here. You are having students who struggle with social cues practice in a way that they won't be judged or feel threatened. On top of that, they are learning an essential life skill. We are going to open a coffee cart in the 2018-19 school year. What a great way to get our baristas ready for the school! Are there other tools that would fit these students? Absolutely! Seeing the benefit that these students took from Osmo just makes me want to design more activities for them. This experience opened my eyes even more to the power of authentic play and creation, and I just want to keep the push going!
