Siftables :Interactive Learning tools the size of Cookies
One of my favorite places to visit is the TED.com. (TED: Technology Entertainment Design) Well, David Merrill, an MIT grad student, meets all those requirement as he demos Siftables. They are little computer blocks that you manipulate to create music, do math, play language games, and so much more. Merrill states that it is similar to how spatial reasoning helps us understand a lot of the world around us. This is a very exciting glimpse of what will soon be available to our children.
