Pre-school Children’s Books Animation

The Changing Seasons

Project LEARN builds on the University of Cincinnati’s Learning by Design Lab’s aim to progress literacy through providing science topics in the form of educational books to help children primarily develop their language skills. The content of the books provides important scientific information to further increase the educational experience of practicing their literacy.  
I worked with the augmented reality tool, Artivive, to bring the animations to life within the physical books. The Artivive app recognizes an image and plays a corresponding uploaded video on the device. This resource provides educators with numerous possibilities in helping children understand and remember the concepts.
I spent the first half of the semester in Adobe After Effects and Photoshop animating still images and graphics within the books to provide more effective visual explanations to the complex science topics. I additionally tested how pre-existing content, such as stock videos, could be used for this project within Artivive.
