Bringing The World To Life With The NEW Orboot Interactive Globes Powered By Augmented Reality!


A few weeks ago, we unboxed something new and exciting at Van Meter!  
As the kids carried down the four boxes to their classroom, they couldn't wait to see what was inside. 
We opened them up to find four of the Orboot Interactive Globes powered by augmented reality from...
...PlayShifu that we ordered from...
...our friends at Maker Maven. 

As shared on the Maker Maven site, 

With 400+ highlights & 1000+ cool facts to explore, Orboot is the perfect S.T.E.A.M. toy for kids. A perfect toy for the ever-curious kids that sparks their imagination and curiosity. Makes for a unique and cool gift for kids!

Explore & learn at the tap of a finger with the best interactive globe for kids.

As I was looking for new technology resources to purchase for our school and library, I was so intrigued  by the Orboot Interactive Globes and the educational, collaborative and fun experiences these would bring to our students and teachers. 

Let me tell you a little more! 
With four of the globes, we put the kids into groups around the room.  
Each group was given a globe and iPad with the...
As they set off to....
....explore, they scanned the globe to...
...bring it to life. 
They explored all the different places around the globes by...
...tapping on the different 4D figures. 
They explored....
...400+ wonders and 1000+ facts in 6 different categories including...
....animals, cultures, inventions, monuments, maps and cuisines. 
They can read or listen along with the app. 

As our students use the globes even more, they can't wait to hunt treasure around the world and...
...tour and learn on the trips.
And they all loved taking the fun challenges along the way! 
The Orboot Globes definitely sparks our students curiosity and interest about the world, cultures, global traditions and so much more!  We can't wait to see where this exploration takes them next. 

And guess what?  I just saw that they have a special offer right now.  You will find the details above, friends.
