While attempting to find a material for a heuristic education app for children, I chose to make use of one of Korean fairy tales, called DOKAEBEE.
'DOKAEBEE is the name of the character who appears as a monster in the story. It is able to transform into human, animals, objects, anything at its choice. As it became recognized as somewhat unfamiliar and outdated by children nowadays, I thought I could vitalize it as it not only has so many valuable and cultural elements but entertaining ones.
In order to recreate its values and draw users interests, I put formative characteristics and monochromy into its design in a modern and simple way so that it will attract them more easily than the old ones do. There are three functions in this application: Reading, making, and sharing traditional fairy tales.
Preparation materials : TV, ipad, and plastic models. When placing plastic models, each oh which has their own stories, on the tablet, fairy tales are appeared on TV through animation. By using the models, stories of one's own can be created.
