The OSMO game system allows students to interact with the iPad. The games focus on shape, word, math, and coding. There are also drawing interactives. OSMO literally makes the iPad an education accessory that engages students. It is a great tool to use for student differentiation. This hands on activity can be used by students in pairs as well. PLAYOSMO says it best:  Osmo fosters learning in key areas such as: creative problem solving, art, STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and common core.  
  • Coding teaches logic and problem solving skills.  
  • Tangram fosters spatial relational skills.  
  • Words teaches spelling and critical thinking skills.  
  • Newton fosters creative problem solving skills.  
  • Masterpiece teaches drawing and creative confidence.  
  • Numbers teaches counting, addition and multiplication.
