18 Animations of Classic Literary Works: From Plato and Shakespeare, to Kafka, Hemingway and Gaiman Yesterday we featured Piotr Dumala's 2000 animation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s classic novel, Crime and Punishment, and it reminded us of many other literary works that have been wonderfully re-imagined by animators -- many that we've featured here over the years. Rather than leaving these wondrous works buried in the archives, we're bringing them back and putting them all on display. And what better place to start than with a foundational text -- Plato's Republic. We were tempted to show you a claymation version of the seminal philosophical work (watch here), but we decided to go instead with Orson Welles' 1973 narration of The Cave Allegory, which features the surreal artistic work of Dick Oden. Staying with the Greeks for another moment ... This one may have Sophocles and Aeschylus spinning in their graves.

How it Works Vocabulary Cartoons Work By Using Mnemonics Vocabulary Cartoons works on the principle of mnemonics. A mnemonic is a device that helps you remember something by associating what you are trying to remember with something you already know. A mnemonic device could be in many different forms like; rhymes, songs, pictures to name a few. For example, "Columbus sailed the ocean blue in fourteen hundred ninety-two" is a classic mnemonic rhyme which helps you remember when Columbus discovered America. Following the mnemonic principle of association, Vocabulary Cartoons link together an auditory (rhyming) word association and a visual association in the form of a humorous cartoon.

There are many companies and developers which make an effort to introduce this technology to students, professionals and researchers related to the education field. Like in nearly all the Augmented Reality applications, through specific images into the text books, students will be able to access extra 3D contents related to each image. This additional information will improve, not only the students´ experience, but also the way in which they learn the lesson, allowing them to understand the content much better than without Augmented Reality. This makes sense when we talk about lessons for children, where they can feel that they play with this extra layered information, with which they will have a more robust learning, as has been shown by some researchers in the field.
