Interactive Animation as an Educational Tool in "Winter Dreams"

A narrative-based game about the winter hibernation of a bear family. "Winter Dreams" is an experimental interactive multimedia project developed for kids aged 5-7. It teaches the following skills: object recognition, picture identification and matching, early math and problem solving, and creativity. The game consists of chain-style interfaces that require children to solve simple game tasks to earn rewards and move to the next interface. Simple text explanations at the bottom of the window, symbols, and animations help children to understand the task.
