Using Perspective in Narrative Learning Environments

Abstract : Several empathic applications have been developed over the last years but can we redirect that empathy to specific characters? This paper focuses on the intention to induce empathy in children and stimulate role taking by presenting a narrative through the perspective of a specific character. The use of perspective is achieved by showing the events that happen in the story but without impartiality. We will describe a narrative-based application designed to help children cope with bullying situations, the FearNot! demonstrator, and an embedded filter that provides the subjective point of view of its characters, by observing the personalities and the relationships between those characters.
