Pas a Pas

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Pas a Pas is an interactive educational tool that enables children to learn and experiment through animation. It is designed to support and integrate in to an existing curriculum and is not meant to alter the natural learning pace of children. Pas a Pas incorporates physicality and the animated outcome of stop motion animation to bridge the gap between abstract concepts from maths, physics or arts – usually represented by graphs, equations or words – and reality. Pas a Pas contributes to an education that integrates ‘play’ and ‘create’ in to the learning process.

Due to the inherent tangibility of stop motion animation, the concept fits into Montessori education methods – it is aligned with the idea of self-directed learning, indirect teaching and multi-age grouping.
