iPod Touch in Pre Kindergarten

video
This was the first time that these 3&4 yr olds had ever tried using the set of school iPod Touches. The kids were very quick to learn how to switch it on and access the App. Within a few minutes I had all 12 iPods being used independently. The kids maintained concentration for a full 45 minutes. It was awesome!!! The App that we used was Puzzle Shape Builder Lite which is a free App.

Weaving in Sumatra

I have been learning (or trying to learn) the complex art of making Ulos which is a traditional woven cloth from Toba, North Sumatra. The type of Ulos is called Ragi Hotan. It has over 2000 warps across and is about 2M long.
