Hi Gigi,
I'm happy to hear that this is inspiring you :) I love the idea of offering parents insights into how these lessons can benefit children in multiple ways. Thank you for the suggestion. Feel free to pm me if you'd like to talk further.

Hi Peggy,

Your app is a fabulous idea! As I mentioned in my IDEO idea, the book, Meaningful Differences, was hugely inspiring to me as both an educator and new parent. Speaking to young children, from the earliest moments, is so important. And I'm delighted to hear that this idea inspired you to further contextualize language development and acquisition in play and creative activities.

Do you know about Visual Thinking Strategies? It's a research-backed strategy, developed by Abigail Housen (Harvard) and Philip Yenawine (MOMA), that invites children (ages 5+) to talk about art and it helps with language development. https://vtshome.org/

Please be in touch if it would be helpful to continue the conversation: rachelle@tinkerlab.com

Fondly,
Rachelle
