Monster Moves

DESCRIPTION

This is an app that enables children aged 5 and younger to create their own choreography of dance moves for monsters, thus exercising kids’ creativity. Kids develop an awareness of their creative control by sequencing illustrated tiles that correspond to each monster’s unique set of dance moves. An important feature of the app is that to some extent it forces kids to make decisions (on the choreography of each monster). To disseminate the app, it was prepared in a number of language versions.

JUSTIFICATION

On one hand the project make kids spending more time with a tablet or a mobile device, but on the other hand it supports creativity and stimulates musical sense of the kids. That is why the assessment of project’s impact on society could be difficult. However, as this app is not another “time-eater but rather an effective tool to develop children’s skills, it is justified to call it a success story. Kids have the opportunity to learn and exercise decision making skills and to define individual profile of each monster.
