Digital Media Show
May 28, 2010 —
The Digital Media Program is leading the way in new media design and production. The Program’s Senior Show on June 5th will feature the students’ innovations in computer games, 3D animation, web design and development and digital installations. Visitors will be able to demo interactive exhibits and speak with the seniors who produced the works from 1 PM to 3 PM in Nesbitt Hall. Senior Teams will then make formal presentations and discuss their work from 3 PM–5 PM.
This years projects include LexiConquest, a literary tool for middle and high school-aged students to help students experience some of history’s most significant pieces of writing, all under the guise of a fun and strategic trading card computer game; Desda, an entertainment system to help parents with daughters with Rett Syndrome or other severe disabilities that limit the use of phones and computers that dynamically loads video messages from friends and family into a musical animation; Independence Navigator, an iphone app and website developed to enhance the visitor experience at historic Independence National Park in Philadelphia; Eye Venturers Toy Detectives, a 2D Flash game and educational learning tool for children with autism spectrum disorders designed to teach social interaction skills by using eye-tracking technology so that players can initiate conversations with on-screen characters by looking directly at their faces and Social Graffiti.
