“What our experts think
Osmo is a simply fabulous example of educational technology toy that is genuinely fun, has real developmental benefits and makes best use of both the technology and physical toys. So novel and so fun we absolutely love it!
Each of the 3 games has different and real developmental benefits. We’ve detailed these individually in 3 separate app review posts (see links from ‘what is it’ above). In summary:
Tangram: adds something valuable to the classic game without taking away the physical 3D skill required – tips and tracking success on screen really helped to encourage the children and we watched them improve as they played.
Newton: we particularly loved watching children learn to play Newton and discover the various ways they could achieve the goal. Fabulous development of logical thinking skills and inspiring them to think outside the box.
Words: was such a great social educational game. The children mostly played this as a 2 player game competitively and got really enthusiastic. It was great to see them thinking strategically about how to lay out their tiles so they could easily and quickly find the letter they wanted.
We were delighted to see the apps were easy to download and the iPad fitted well into the base (although we had to remove its case) and provided good support.”
