History Adventures is a next gen digital book application I am developing in association with top level mobile animators, artists, and designers--as well as some of the world’s leading historians. This fully enhanced, interactive history book represents a game-changing digital learning experience for 21st Century students.

History Adventures combines the latest innovations in mobile entertainment design technology–including motion, cinematics, animation, music, and sound fx; with the powerful storytelling device of narrativizing the life stories of peoples who lived in past centuries, in different epochs and locations around the globe; with an innovative, cross-disciplinary approach to history: to create a revolutionary interactive learning experience that will enhance student appreciation for the relevance and fascination of the past. Original interaction design demonstrates how data visualization, interactive maps of time, musical scoring, branching paths, and documentary-inspired visualizations can bring the pages of history to life.
