Here’s what’s been going on here in “Hotlanta” at the ISTE 2014 Conference

unnamedThe second session was the Little Learners Playground, showcasing some of the coolest new advances in educational technology for the four to seven year age group.

Osmo, the cool new product (still in the preorder stage) was being demonstrated and all attendees got to try it out first hand. Tangible Play, the company behind this device, calls it reflective artificial intelligence technology. It consists of a base that props up the iPad and a small mirror that gets placed over the camera.
