Blocks that Blink, Beep, and Teach

 Using Little Bits to Develop Elementary Engineers
Little Bits: a little bit of geeky fun!

On my 70 minute car rides home each day, I have a lot of time to listen to podcasts and TED Talks.  One recent TED Talk captured my attention so much that I had to blog about it.  Just as TED believe in sharing inspiring ideas, I know teachers share ideas with each other, too.  As I was listening to Ayah Bdeir discuss "Building Blocks that Blink, Beep, and Teach," I couldn't help but become so interested in how these devices could spark creative young minds to construct and play.
