Product: Story Telling Kit in a box for children
Story Telling Augment Reality (S.T.A.R.) Kit is an interactive package to help children age 2 to 7 years old tell stories for a holistic development of a child. The design is based on a copyrighted theoretical Norma™ Engagement Multimedia Design (NEMD) Model. STAR Kit in a box comprises of
1) printed books,
2) paper figurines,
3) printed board (like monopoly board) with trackers and grid for Augmented Reality (AR) app for tablets like iPad.
Images of children story telling can be transmitted to computer screens, tablets, and smartphones.
STAR Kit aims to deliver a child who is confident, an active participant, with good values and closer bonding with parents and siblings. The basic premise is to have children between ages of 2 to 7 years old participate in storytelling on their own. Storytelling has proven to increase imagination, creativity and confidence among kids. Augmented reality on apps for tablet and smartphone is further infused into STAR Kit for more engagement between users, parents and children.
In the box of STAR Kit there will be playing boards with graphics on them (like monopoly board game), paper based figure characters, children printed story books and other items. To use our product, a parent will read the storybook to the children. Then the parent will open the graphic board and give the paper figure characters to the children. The child will then repeat the story heard from the parent reading the book and start telling to the parent the story by using the paper figure characters with the graphic board. Every movement will be displayed on screens of tablets or smartphones.
