My students need two iPads to use with Osmo Explore Kits.
Our school is home to a district wide program for academically gifted students in grades 2-8. Our students come from throughout the city and represent all socioeconomic levels and diverse backgrounds.
My students are designers, thinkers, problem solvers, and creators who utilize technology to make connections, think critically, and make sense of the world around them.
Students in my classroom view the world with curiosity and wonder. My students enjoy using technology to learn new information collaboratively and share their knowledge.
iPads will be used as the operating platform with Osmo Explore kits.
Children learn through play and this project will foster student imagination and drive to learn.
Osmo is an interactive app that students use with manipulatives and the iPad's camera. As students master skills, levels become more challenging, and the teacher can further personalize individual students learning objectives and skills.
Students will learn:
-Coding concepts and logical thinking
-Number sense and math confidence
-Spatial sense and visual acuity
-Reading and vocabulary
-Creativity and problem solving
-Hand-eye coordination and self expression
This project will ensure that my students have daily and equal access to technology as our school is not one to one ratio for devices to students.
