The GT/AIG Basics Magnet Schools in North Carolina's Wake County and FableVision Learning have teamed up to use Animation-ish in their classrooms. On Jan. 15, 2016, key teachers and leaders from around the district gathered with Dr. Denine Jimmerson, Creativity Curriculum and Evaluation Specialist with the Reynolds Center for Teaching, Learning, and Creativity and Hannah O’Neal, Artist and Animator at FableVision Studios, to explore using animation in the classroom as a tool for deeper learning.
Lisa Thompson, director of Magnet Themes and Curriculum in Wake County, led the initiative with gusto!
“We hope to increase creative expression in many different subject areas across elementary and middle school elective courses and classes,” Lisa said.
Creativity is a much-needed skill for 21st Century Learners, and Wake County plans on using FableVision’s Animation-ish as a tool to promote deep learning across content.
And they also brainstormed FABULOUS ideas how to use Animation-ish as a rigorous tool in the teaching and learning process.
We are looking forward to this new collaboration between FableVision Learning and Wake County.
Stay tuned for more great things to come! Create Bravely!
