Lucas Pasqualin 1 of 3 Selected to Study Abroad at the Children’s Media Department of FIDMT in Erfurt, Germany

Congratulations to Lucas Pasqualin, a student working in Prodigy at IST, who has been selected as 1 of 3 undergraduate students from UCF to study abroad this summer at the Children’s Media Department of FIDMT in Erfurt, Germany. This is a result of an NSF funded project. He will have a mentor who will seek to grow his professional skills in an international research setting.

The research is primarily focused on Digital Storytelling, with an emphasis on Children’s Games and Dynamic Storytelling. The researchers would like to design a system that a child can interact with, and ask questions such as “Can you tell me a different story?”, or “What would happen if. ” The research encompasses such topics as formal methods for generating and storing new story lines, the effect of digital avatars on listener engagement, and other related technologies.
