An Investigation of Facilitating Healthy Relationships between Females and Males with an Animated E-Book

Project Details


Many love killings have been happened in Taiwan for recent years. Such sad news reveal that students in Taiwan need to be guided to know how to develop healthy gender relationships. Thus, there is a need to deliver such courses for them. The course of gender relationships not only involves how to make love with each other, but also is concerned with close human interactions. To help students build complete understandings, it is necessary to create scenarios which can show close human interactions between lovers. To address this issue, this project will deliver the course of gender relationships with digital learning tools. More specifically, the project will take the advantages of the features of animated films and e-books to develop an animated e-book. On the other hand, individual differences existed among each person, in terms of background, knowledge and skills. Thus, each person might have different reactions to the course of gender relationships. To this end, an empirical study will be undertaken to investigate the influences of individual differences on learners’ reactions to the course of gender relationships delivered with animated e-book. Finally, two kinds of guidelines will be generated based on the results of the empirical study. One is ‘gender guidelines’, which depict how individual differences affect learners’ reaction to gender relationships. The other is ‘technology guidelines’ which illustrate how individual differences affect learners’ reaction to the use of the animated e-book.
