This blog is about Maths teaching, however this year (as noted in an earlier post), I’m also teaching a computing subject: Information and Software Technology. Occassionally, I’ll post something that is more related to a computing subject than Maths, but hopefully everyone reading this blog will still find it interesting.
The TED2009 conference was held earlier this month. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design – it’s a conference for fascinating people to present (in a limited amount of time) their ideas for the future. Over time, they release videos from the conference.
This talk by MIT grad student David Merrill is about Siftables
cookie-sized, computerized tiles you can stack and shuffle in your hands. These future-toys can do math, play music, and talk to their friends, too. Is this the next thing in hands-on learning?
I’m looking at user interface design with my computing class at the moment, so finding this video was particularly timely. Oh, and there is a bit of Maths in it.
