In the Digital Diorama project we digitalized some dioramas from Museums of Natural History to obtain interactive multimedia interfaces working with IWB, pc and tablet. We have completed a Digital Diorama prototype and started testing it in some primary school classes. To assess its use by the students we have utilized different research methodologies. One of the techniques used was that of the eye-tracking (quantitative assessment), the other ones, used to assess quality, were: teachers’ focus groups, monitoring of classroom work, collecting and evaluating students’ products. The results of our research will be presented. Future Digital Dioramas planned in the project will deal with sustainability, highlighting its relationship with present environmental issues. We will test the Digital Dioramas in over twenty classes throughout the country.

Abstract

In the Digital Diorama project we digitalized some dioramas from Museums of Natural History to obtain interactive multimedia interfaces working with IWB, pc and tablet. We have completed a Digital Diorama prototype and started testing it in some primary school classes. To assess its use by the students we have utilized different research methodologies. One of the techniques used was that of the eye-tracking (quantitative assessment), the other ones, used to assess quality, were: teachers’ focus groups, monitoring of classroom work, collecting and evaluating students’ products. The results of our research will be presented. Future Digital Dioramas planned in the project will deal with sustainability, highlighting its relationship with present environmental issues. We will test the Digital Dioramas in over twenty classes throughout the country.
