Previous Work

TOK – Touch, Organize, Create – is a platform consisting of an electronic surface that connects to a computer or tablet and identifies TOK blocks placed on it.


t-words is an interface for children to playfully explore sounds, words and sentences, while developing preliterate skills.                                                                                                                                           


​t-books consists of an electronic board, a book with slots and a set of picture cards that children place on the book to interact and explore the narrative.
