|Does science animation really deliver ? - Author : Amit Kulshresth|
Science and technology have a great potential for teaching and learning through animation.
Animation can visually show things that are hidden by the virtue of their size like atoms; and highlight things that are invisible like heat and light waves; can make things alive like the bacterial and amoebic life forms. Animation moreover can hold interest of the audience longer in the subject than diagrams and text can.
Animation reduces the learning time: more knowledge is acquired faster.
In the present age of e-learning, the same animation can be shared across the schools located in a city or state or continents permitting the spread of knowledge faster and easier.
Most people enjoy learning from animation. It appeals to a wide audience, independent of their age or skills. It teaches people in their natural way of learning by seeing, observing and hearing than by reading.
The combination of movement and sound creates an interesting, lively and effective method of learning. It is more appealing than text, photographs or diagrams and is therefore more likely to be remembered.
It shortens the period of experimentation illustrating in seconds, rather than days or weeks, the growth of crystals or plants.
It also reduces effort in going to field and watching a rainbow while it can be studied from desktop easily. To learn about paper production instead of receiving a mill you can see it on your computer and understand the science and technology behind it in hours
It prevents injury watching and learning to remove and discard a nuclear fuel in animation and simulation is less hazardous than and doing it in real life.
Each new innovation brings to fore a set of questions, doubts and confusions:
Are these tools of today really widespread?
These and many other doubts that plague the usage of new methods, but there is definitely today a need to revolutionize the whole system of learning to produce a better, faster, wider learning.
We have created comprehensive curiosity
