Eclectic Curiosity

Greek mythology has never been so colourful and fun to learn. Winged Sandals is a collaboration between Melbourne University and the Australian Broadcasting Company with the purpose of sharing the rich stories of classical mythology with young 6-12 year old children. Gods, mortals and monsters are all described and some of the better known stories — How Apollo got his Oracle and Orpheus and the Underworld, among others — are animated in lively and sometimes musical Flash vignettes. Says the site’s creative director Rosie Allimonos, “I chose this subject partly because I knew that the stories of myth would inspire animators but also to use the latest technologies of digital storytelling to let the stories speak to web audiences and inspire thirst for the classics in a new generation.”
