Animation for the Modern Classroom


The iPhone was born only 10 years ago. Can you believe it’s now a multi-billion dollar industry? What kinds of jobs will be available in 12 years when today’s kindergarten students graduate from high school? We don’t know, but we do know that we need to prepare them to be problem solvers and critical thinkers. What if we could inspire children to be these problem solvers? And what if we could cultivate mindful habits in them as early as kindergarten? What if I told you we can achieve this right now? We can! The ASCD, The Institute for Habits of Mind, and Wonder Media have joined together to bring you an innovative and groundbreaking classroom tool. Introducing The Habits of Mind Animations! These 3 educational powerhouses have collaborated to bring the Habits of Mind to children everywhere. The 16 research based problem solving dispositions have been taught to some of the world’s most revered critical thinkers, and are now available in short and captivating animations to inspire young minds to become tomorrow’s leaders. We have but to look around us and see problems in the environment, problems in societies, problems in cultures, problems of the economy. We don’t know how to solve those. And the kids are going to be the problem solvers of the future. Can you think about the future of our country if we had an educational system that really embraced what I call the essential life skills. Empathy. Curiosity. Inquisitiveness. Problem solving. Cooperation. Effective communication. And I just think that the culture of a school is absolutely vital to the holistic development of a student. We can’t wait. The time is now. Join us, and make it happen!
