I recently came across an interesting TED video about Siftables: “cookie-sized, computerized blocks you can stack and shuffle in your hands.”
I loved the concept of Siftables because it has the potential to adapt to a child’s learning behavior, rather than forcing the child to learn the technology’s behavior. This is something that a lot of my peers struggle with. Siftables allows for much more flexibility of the mind and the way we solve problems.
It made wonder if we’ll see technological building blocks like this in elementary schools in the near future.
What do you think: could you see “siftables” making its way into a school near you?
