Rumpelstiltskin in Traditional and New Digital Media

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The paper documents the process of creating a children's book prototype which develops new ways to utilise digital media alongside traditional methods and techniques such as mark making, drawing, painting and collage. The work aims to promote and develop language and literacy development within an innovative contemporary illustration context. The work makes use of research into specific learning methods (such as cloze procedure, semantic and syntactic evaluation, word identification and phonics) and embeds them within a traditional fairytale narrative. The aim of the book is to stimulate and motivate learners through use of tested learning methods alongside experimental use of illustration, layout and letter forms.
