Title: Nutrition education via interactive animated storytelling devices in classroom environments
Authors: Ruane, Gregory Christopher
Keywords: Digital Media;Obesity in children;Digital storytelling
Issue Date: 19-May-2011
Abstract: Childhood obesity has become an epidemic in developed nations and prevention in the form of education is one possible solution. My proposed thesis will combine traditional storytelling methods and constructivist educational theory with a digital, interactive animation. Through the interactive animation, a student is able to guide the central character through a story by making decisions at key points. Upon completion, an instructor leads a classroom discussion encouraging students to reflect and expand upon the decisions they have made.
