Proposal: James & Blueberry

Project Description:
1.  Teach children using puppets.

3.   Timeline
·      Due Week 4: Redesigned Site built in HTML5
·      Due Week 5: Interaction functionality implemented

4.   Videos will be fresh and targeted for today’s generation of children who have, for the most part, left the borders of Sesame Street toward higher level learning.
5.   Children ages 5-8 years old.
6.  Survey Results
Children find puppets amusing, and because so, they pay attention to what the puppet is doing or saying and in turn they retain the knowledge learned.
