Education gaming outfit Osmo raises $12 million

Educational disruptor Osmo - previously called Tangible Play - has announced a $12 million in Series A funding round.

It was led by Accel Partners, which also invested in Supercell, Rovio and Playfish.

As part of the investment, Accel Partners' Rich Wong will join the company's board of directors.

Other investors included Upfront Ventures and K9 Ventures.

Learning fast

"Osmo's technology makes childhood education more personal, creative and engaging. We believe that the future of education will rely on intuitive innovation that amplifies learning through interactive online-to-offline experiences - Osmo is at the forefront of this movement," said Wong.

"Osmo is a natural fit for parents and teachers because it adds a small but powerful layer of technology on top of a platform (the iPad) that children already know and love."
