Siftables, demoed by David Merrill in a TED Talk, are amazing mini computerized blocks! I can already see the possibilities for the classroom! Amazing! And thanks, Mike, for sharing this presentation!
Garr Reynolds, a self-described design evangelist, has a very interesting blog called Presentation Zen. He also has written a book by the same name that I just started reading. Today I noticed his most frequent blog post: an 18 minute video of Jill Bolte Taylor’s presentation at TED Talks. It floored me. She describes her experience of surviving a stroke, with a Neuroanatomist viewpoint, and how the stroke really clarified for her “how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another.” It’s totally worth the watch!!!
