After working in the education sector most of her working life, Sarah believed that learning should be a fun experience for youngsters, encouraging them to engage more in activities. She is interested in how children learn by reading and through illustrations within story book. This has led Sarah to her final design project. After hearing about augmented reality, she thought it would be a great addition to use this within an illustrated story book. Her young son is afraid of the dark and is frightened by noises at night, this led her to develop a story about nocturnal animals. Characters have been developed from drawings provided to Sarah by children. The Adobe Suite has been used to produce final designs and a story book for children aged 6-8 years. In collaboration with her husband, a graduate in Computing Technologies, and other students the augmented reality book was produced. In addition to the story book, she has developed bedroom furnishings and accessoires which will also feature in the augmented reality element.
