Little robots

Every once in a while something truely good shows up. The Scrabble Flash game is one of those addictive learning games that cimbines hands on learning with vocabulary. I instantly want multiple sets for my classroom. Student can wirk in pairs recording all the words and then finding the meanings of those that they don't know. I remember seeing the presentation of the designer of these little wonders on TED, and thinking how good they would be for education. Thanks to the toy company they are now in the mass market. It just shows that a great presentation can spark real inovation and that educational tools can come from providers outside the educational sphere. Hopefully some one will also market a math version in the future. I have a fealing we will be seeing more tiny robots in the classroom in the future.
Thank you for using Picture and Video Messaging by U.S. Cellular. See for info.
