Spin: Examining the Role of Engagement, Integration, and Modularity in Supporting Youth Creating Documentation
Animated stories are challenging to produce for the novice adult, let alone for children. Research into how to facilitate the creation of animations for children is an ongoing effort. In this paper, we propose the concept of performative authoring which taps into the power of children's pretend play to allow them to create animations through body enactments. We review the literature on animation authoring systems focusing on children, propose the new concept of performative authoring that uses enactment as a mode of story authoring, and describe the design of DiME, an exemplar system embodying performative authoring. We report on a pilot study that was conducted with the system.
