This software product is an
educational interactive multimedia CD-ROM*, specifically geared towards
teaching Ukrainian children about Ukrainian language, heritage, and music
through a traditional folk tale, "The Mitten".
The product is interactive in that it allows the child to play through
the story and related games at his or her own pace, providing the ability
to choose which path they wish to pursue, in either English or Ukrainian.
The multimedia aspect of the product is experienced through a display of
animation, sound effects, and music.
The story introduces two animated characters, a young girl, Zoriana,
and a young boy, Niki, depicted in traditional Ukrainian dress. Zoriana
and Niki guide the child through the story, songs, and games. "The Mitten"
is an old Ukrainian folk tale that has been passed on from generation to
generation, in which seven animals are brought together by the bitterness
of a cold winter day, eventually sharing a lost mitten as their warm and
comforting home. The story’s message is one of sharing and friendship, and
is a favourite among Ukrainian folk tales.
|The story is illustrated with
charming animated characters, and the narration and displayed text, as
well as the dialogue between the characters, can be experienced in both
English and Ukrainian. The child is given the option to read the story
from beginning to end, or to read and play, in which case the story stops
at each page, allowing the child to explore and interact with the images,
to play a game or to listen to a song. The child also has the option to skip
directly to his or her favourite page in the story, or to leave the story
at any time. |
At various points in the story, the child is invited to play games
related to the current scene. The games focus on teaching the child
colours, numbers and vocabulary in Ukrainian. The child can choose from
three levels of difficulty.
At various points in the story, the child is invited to sing along with
traditional Ukrainian folk songs, accompanied by the bandura. The child
can follow the Ukrainian text while enjoying animation on the screen.
