Title: Myth Understanding
Author: Jackson, Chris
Abstract: "Myth Understanding" is a prototype of an interactive educational program geared towards elementary school children. It provides self-paced instruction, mixing animation, graphics, and sound with information pertaining to earth science. Mythological characters from ancient Greece are sources which provide the child with scientific as well as historic information. In effect, children learn about ancient Greek mythology as they discover the mysteries and makeup of the earth. Children are given the flexibility to decide on what information to view ac cording to their own personal preference. Meticulous attention was given to the artwork interface design and layout. "Myth Understanding" incorporates multimedia design to make Greek mythology and earth science come alive, exhibiting facts that are not only illustrative, but at the same time entertaining and informative. The evolution of "Myth Understanding" will be explored in the following chapters. Initial concepts, research, character development and tqaechnical considerations will be addressed. My main goal is to stimulate, educate, and entertain children about Greek mythology and earth science. "Myth Under standing" provides them with a passport to the time of myths and magic.
