Story Word is a collection of educational apps for children, with the main goal to explain a word through storytelling – using all the word’s components: meaning, shape and sound.
The app takes advantage of new technologies, making content interactive and attractive for children. Story Word goes beyond the classical reading way, with a new page transition and storytelling methods.
Children can follow the story tapping on the screen, while at each tap one, or more elements will appear. The camera follows the popped-up figures through their journey ending with a zoom-out. It is then possible to see that the path of the story has written one word, whose meaning has been told through the story.
At the end of every story, to help children memorize the word, the app includes some activities: writing, listening and repeating. It is also possible to print the word, either black and white for coloring it, or colored, to cut it out and hang it up.
