Abstract:

Using avatars in storytelling to assist narration has proved to be beneficial on promoting creativity, collaboration and intimacy among young children. Development of novel Human Computer Interaction (HCI) techniques provides us with new possibilities to explore the training aspects of storytelling by creating new ways of interaction. In this paper, we design and develop a novel digital puppetry storytelling system-Puppet Narrator for young children, utilizing depth motion sensing technology as the HCI method. More than merely allowing children to narrate orally, our system allows them to use hand gestures to play with a virtual puppet and manipulate it to interact with virtual items in virtual environment to assist narration. Under this novel pattern of interaction, children's narrative ability can be trained and the competencies of cognition and motor coordination can also be nourished.
