FACTE Session: Creativity to Careers - Middle School Animation CTE as a Model

Join FableVision Learning's Jane Reynolds and Dr. Denine Jimmerson at the Florida Association for Career and Technical Education on July 16-18, 2018, at the Champions Gate Resort.  

On Tuesday, July 17, they will hold a session titled: Creativity to Careers: Middle School Animation CTE as a Model.

The session will introduce school districts to our new model to which creates a continuum from middle school to high school and beyond, progressing from Animation-ish to Toon Boom software and gaining experience and certification on the journey.

While some schools are using animation in middle school for content and creativity, middle school teachers can be outside of their comfort zone in approaching CTE. We can provide unique scaffolding for both teachers and students with our Creativity to Careers program.

We have developed the fundamental elements to expand the uptake of animation as a bona fide CTE program in middle school. While teachers can continue to use our animation software as they do now, we will add the curriculum, training and professional development to link the program to a career path. Our own FableVision professional animation studio in Boston MA is our model for students, and they can have virtual access to the studio for tours and mentoring.  We have linked with Summit Global to provide the middle school certification.  We have applied for listing as on Florida Digital Tools.

The goal of our Creativity to Careers program is to ensure a good take up of animation CTE in high school by starting in middle school, giving students the opportunity to test out careers before committing to a 2 year program.   While learning animation, students will also be developing core work skills in communication and collaboration, as well as a host of inherent skills within an animation studio.

"Navigating Our Way" Launch Party

"Navigating Our Way" Launch Party

Navigating our way launch party.jpg

FableVision Studios and Big Picture Learning cordially invite you to celebrate the launch of our first animated film collaboration, Navigating Our Way!

The Navigating Our Way film kicks off a new leading national initiative - of the same name—committed to shifting how society values career and technical education (CTE) and the skilled trades. The time is NOW to help all students follow their interest and pursue their passions. We are excited to share and connect with others who want to change the narrative—including educational leaders, policymakers, researchers, and industry stakeholders.

The first film in the series, Navigating Our Way is narrated by award-winning film and television actor and New Orleanian Wendell Pierce. The story features two childhood friends’ very different learning journeys; Seymour leaving for college, and Sylvie staying home in New Orleans where her passions lie—in the shipyards and with the trades. They're ultimately reunited to find that their individual successes lead to a beautiful partnership.


Navigating Our Way was written by Elliot Washor (Big Picture Learning) and Paul Reynolds (FableVision)—with character design by New York Times best-selling picture book author Peter H. Reynolds. The film’s original music score was composed by New Orleans native Brian Richburg, Jr. in collaboration with composer Tony Lechner.

Save the date and come celebrate with us!

When: Thursday, May 3, 2018
Time: 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Where:
FableVision Studios
308 Congress Street, 6th floor
