Ted Talks, children shake ipod books

Artist Raghava KK demos his new children’s book for iPad with a fun feature: when you shake it, the story — and your perspective — changes. In this charming short talk, he invites all of us to shake up our perspective a little bit.

Update. I went back and looked at this Ted Talk today. Wow. I love this man. He created something that will help a child learn to change perspectives. For example: a family can be one man and one woman and children, shake the ipad and now it is two men and children or two women and children. Want to learn about India’s independence, now shake the ipad and you get Pakistan’s perspective, shake again and you get Britain s perspective.

Perspectives teach empathy. It helps them put themselves in the shoes of someone that is different from them.
