Amal Abdalla, Hanna Ramla, Nagwa Aly, Cat Normoyle


The Art Education subject in Middle school in Egypt has been somewhat neglected, without receiving adequate focus for its development in line with the modern demands of the current era. One of the primary sources of education for students in schools is textbooks. The existing school Art Education textbook lacks content, presentation, and design, requiring substantial improvement. The "Visual Interactive Book for Art Education” (VIBE) project aims to revolutionize the way Egyptian Art is taught in middle school classrooms. By transforming the content of the traditional Art Education textbook into an interactive electronic book, VIBE offers a more engaging, accessible, and effective learning tool for students seeking to develop their artistic sensibilities. VIBE showcases the works of renowned Egyptian artists and highlight their artistic techniques to enhance students' artistic abilities while improving accessibility and convenience for learning the material through expanded ways for communicating the knowledge. Through the incorporation of high-quality images, videos, and games, VIBE provides a dynamic and immersive learning experience.This paper offers a comparative analysis of the visual elements of the original printed textbook and VIBE to illustrate the research and design process. VIBE provides a better learning experience, accessible and intuitive design to navigate for middle school kids than the printed textbook. By leveraging cutting-edge technology and innovative design, VIBE offers a more engaging and effective learning tool for students to develop their artistic sensibilities and to foster cultural appreciation through art education topics. Plus, this solution costs less to produce and distribute, making it an easily adoptable solution for schools and educators to take on.
