Discipline: Communication

Discipline: Communication

SeeSaw is an educational toy aimed at fostering a new form of communication between toddlers with different languages and customs. SeeSaw invites toddlers from all over the world, who cannot speak, or operate a computer well yet, to use a touch panel and create stimulating visuals together. Touching the monitor creates colored balls or lines to appear on the screen in the same way as if they were scribbling on opposite sides of a window pane. Responding to the shape drawn by one toddler creates an intuitive form of role-sharing. The toddlers continue to build on their own drawing giving it new meaning and form.
