1W12 Creatures and my Son

14 12 2006

The Project

This week I have tried to capture the image that my son has about imaginary creatures. From old and recent videos that I have of him telling stories I came to the conclusion that most of his stories include a beast or a giant mob. Always there is the good guy and the bad guy. The good against evil. I have also noticed that most of the times the good guy, and always this character is a male figure, is smaller or weaker than his opponent, witch is a male figure as well. Of course the good character always win and most of the times claim his price, and some others his just doing a good cause and he help the village, the people or what ever from a great danger

I did not work a lot on my interactive sketch site because I spent my week preparing the story that I will work on, and I have read several books and tutorial that will help my research.

1W11 Kids learning processes

14 12 2006

The Project

After reading, Peter K. Smith, Helen Cowie and Mark Blades Understanding Children’s Development 4th edition. Blackwell Publishing, 2003, and searching the web like http://web4health.info/en/answers/child-imaginary-friend.htm I came to the conclusion that kids develop in a different way from each other. This is not something new, but what is new for me after my research is the learning processes. “Imprinting is often presented as a special form of learning, highly constrained in what is learnd and when it is learned. Many forms of learning are more flexible”. This quote is from Understanding Children’s Development 4th edition p.39. I will get into more details about the kids learning processes. This will be my main research question.

My interactive sketch site is ready and completed. The only problem is to find some time to make it smaller in size so it’s more accessible with not many download time.
