My Students

“Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is most important.” – Bill Gates My first grade students LOVE their iPads...but I want to see them used in the most engaging, meaningful ways possible. Osmo Learning System will help us do it!

Our school is a K-8 STEAM school where the students are highly engaged in a real-world project-based learning curriculum.

We are fortunate to have a one-to-one iPad program..but my first graders are so tech savvy already that I need to engage them in more meaningful uses. My students are making short iMovies, reading digital texts, and navigating websites for research. They need a challenge with iPads and the ability to differentiate tasks based on their reading and math skills/abilities. I want to teach my students how to use iPads and technology with purpose and not just for games. The Osmo Learning System will allow them to interact with the iPad in an engaging way while still learning at their skill level in a fun way!

My Project

With the use of three Osmo Learning Systems, my students will be able to work independently or with a small group of students and INTERACT with their iPads! The students will be able to use the "game" to help them practice phonics/spelling patterns, math (like number sense fluency and geometry), engineering tasks, and artwork for PBL presentations. Due to the varying needs of my students and the multiple tasks they are completing to help others through PBL, I will be able to create a differentiated curriculum to see them all succeed! This system will also be highly engaging and motivating for them to use during their literacy and math centers, which also helps with classroom management.

The award-winning Osmo Learning Systems will allow my students to have a differentiated curriculum where they can use their iPads in a meaningful task and get real-time feedback in a stress-free environment.

With your generous donations to our classroom, my students will be using their iPads to engage in the 21st century skills needed for the workplace: Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creativity!
