Elementary Students: Project Lead The Way

The project was a proof of concept developed as a means of showcasing how we could evolve our content from a simple PDF eBook of text and illustrations, into a dynamic animated piece.  I partnered with our illustrator to bring her existing images to life as the narrator read the story to the students, introducing them to the unit they’ll be studying.  Utilizing the raster-based illustrations, I was able to add enough simple motion, to make the story feel more alive and engaging.  I also synched the text to the narration to give the students a chance to read along, which would be a valuable addition for our younger students who weren’t able to read yet.
