Check out some design links for your weekend, after the jump!
First, a hat tip to the people who share wonderful things about the intersections of design and childhood: Urban Preschool and The Architecture of Early Childhood. Both have been great sources of inspiration!
-----Wake Up With the World is a global intersection of space, time, and sleep. For every silly iPhone app, there is a beautifully designed one that can, maybe, help us stay creative and engaged in our lives. I do wish that the sounds were more appealing - but I can envision during the day rather than as something that wakes me up.
Patatap makes me feel like the music director of the world's coolest aquarium, and it would be interesting for children to use. Representing sounds visually seems like such an intriguing topic to explore with children, and could perhaps be a language that children use to explore animals, music, stories, and more.
Just want to listen to other's compositions? Patatap Tunes is the place.
I hope to share some classroom plus-plus creations soon!
