Learning as Play: Movable Books

Carlos Rosas, associate professor of art and professor-in-charge of the Interdisciplinary Digital Studio (IDS) program, is working with other Penn State faculty and staff on the digital animation of movable books from the 1600s and 1700s -- precursors to today's pop-up books -- in order to make them available to audiences of today.

“I was immediately interested in the project because I actually come from a printmaking background,” Rosas says. “And IDS is all about making collaborative connections with other groups and disciplines, so it was a great project right off the bat.” For the full story, by Katie Jacobs, IT Communications, click here.
