Osmo is a game system that uses an iPad to engage in physical play. An image is shown on the screen and the player engages by creating words, numbers, Tangrams, etc. A whole range of games is available.
- Braille Letter ID A-Z
- Dot 4 5 initial contractions
- Final letter contractions
- Alphabet Contractions A-Z
- Braille Word Signs
I have created:
- Strong Group Signs
- Lower Group signs/Words
- Braille Shortform A Words
- Dot 5 Contractions
These are all able to be downloaded from the Osmo website once you have an account.
To get started, you will need the following:
- an iPad
The student or teacher would need an Osmo set. The starter "Genius kit" is about $79.99
The instructions are roughly the same across all Osmo Word sets. As you get into the app, there are some choices for how to play (collaboratively, one on one, etc.)
It isn't particularly accessible with VoiceOver, as this is really for students with low vision and other dual media students.
I foresee us making even more albums, especially since our students have loved this game and it is a nice addition to support our curriculum.
