This week on placement, the students have been using Osmo as an activity during literacy groups. Before placement, I had heard of Osmo, but I didn’t really know what it was about. So this week has been a learning experience for me as well! It is a gaming system that combines digital play with hands on learning. The game uses physical pieces with a specific app (Words, Coding, Numbers). The red reflector sits over the ipads camera to enable it to see what is in front of it. The students have been playing the words game, where they have to guess and spell the word that appears on the screen. They loved it! I think tomorrow, I might make it a bit interesting and have students play together to see who can guess the word first.
