Oh, SNAP! My good buddies at Osmo are running an awesome summer sale! They are giving teachers an opportunity to get the creative kit for 20% off. I am going to be honest and tell you that I was a bit skeptical of this Osmo product before I got it, but after I did, I should have known that the awesome folks at Osmo were doing something great.
If you have not seen an Osmo, it is a kit that gives you a base with a red piece that you can put over the camera of the device to mirror what you are doing in front of the device. They then give you interactive pieces to play with in front of the device that the device then reads and provides feedback through an app.
The Creative kit is being advertised as the pieces for the Monster app, but it also works with Newton app and the Masterpiece app. The kit includes a whiteboard, markers, and erasers specifically built to fit in front of the Ipad. You can take the Monster app and draw things for Mo the Monster to use in the app (he pulls them up on screen, you can draw lines to get a ball in Newton, or you can take a picture and then get trace lines in Masterpiece. It is a great way to bring out kids creativity!
If your hesitating on the creative kit…don’t. Getting another whiteboard to fit perfectly in the space for the iPad to read is next to impossible, and it is WAY better than having kids use 1000 sheets of paper to do just a few things.
