There was not that much information on this site about kirigami. I was
interested to learn about it since I was unfamiliar with it, and the ideas of
origami seem closely related to it. I spent a few minutes manipulating the
wedges and changing the colors of the shapes, but that is as much as you can do.
The site is good for those who learn visually because there is not a lot to
read. The instructions were brief and not too informative. I think the only way
for this to be effective as a teaching and learning tool, is if you try to do
kirigami with your own hands.

Technical Remarks:

It was very easy to manipulate the wedges and change the color of the shapes.
