School Assembly Showcase in Chicago Rolls Around Again!

  
  
  
  
  

chicago school assembly showcaseYes, its that time again! School is starting right this week in many places and another exciting year is under way! Do you know what awesome school assemblies your kids will see this year? If not, well...time is wasting and the best dates are filling quickly. It is time to get moving!

And once more the schools in greater Chicago and the surrounding area have an awesome opportunity coming to do some super “one stop shopping” for the coming year. Every year the very finest school assembly performers gather in Skokie, Illinois for the Performers for Young Audiences Showcase, held annually at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts. This year the date is set for Wednesday, August 27, from 8AM until about 3PM

Chicago School Assembly ShowcaseMany of these stellar presenters will be showcasing snippets of their wonderful school shows for you to “audition” and judge whether they are what you would like to bring into your building. And all of us will be available at booths scattered around the outer lobby and in the the interior “big” room so that you will have the amazing opportunity to converse with and get to know the performers themselves. This is an awesome opportunity.

So make your plans to attend!

Mobile Ed, as always will be there with some of our performers, including one marvelous person who is hard at work putting the finishing touches on our newest program, the as yet unannounced (shhhhh) Sacagawea! This great new addition to our lineup tells the astonishing tale of the Native American girl who accompanied and saved the fabled Lewis and Clark expedition to chart the newly opened West. Look for more on this exciting new show soon, but next week will be your opportunity to actually meet Sacagawea in person! We really hope to see you there.

middle school bullying showAdditionally, we will have new information about another of our newest performers, Mr. Peace, who for the first time allows Mobile Ed to not only address the vitally important issue of Bullying in the middle and high school age bracket, but does so in spectacular fashion talking to teenagers in their own language and with a “street cred” they will listen to and respond to. This is an area sourly lacking in resources despite being the time frame in the development of children where the greatest abuses take place and where there is the greatest need for solid, intelligent assistance. Mobile Ed is very proud to once more be able to bring help in an area of need.

Chicago School Assembly ShowcaseAll in all, this year gives you more reasons than ever to be excited about all the possibilities for enhancing your students lives, and Skokie is the place to be to make that magic happen.

Come see me next week. We will make it well worth your time and you will be glad you did!

 

The Illinois for the Performers for Young Audiences Showcase will be held at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts, 9501 Skokie Blvd. In Skokie Illinois, August 27, 2014. Details are available at

Anti Bullying Assemblies for Middle and High Schools

  
  
  
  
  

bullying in middle schools

The start of school is right around the corner and everywhere school personnel and parents are scrambling to make plans for the new school year. The start of a new year is often seen as a time to set a solid behavioral tone for the year with some kind of plan to encourage strong character among students and also to combat bullying.

For years now, Mobile Ed has offered superb programs on anti bullying techniques and in the area of strong character development. And many, many schools fill up our schedules each year for these great school assemblies. However, the programs we offer, wonderful as they most certainly are, follow styles that are designed to speak to elementary aged kids. Sadly, the greatest need for such programs is elsewhere.

great middle school bullying show resized 600Bullying is at it worst during the turbulent years students spend in middle school, from grades 6-8. Any parent with kids in High School will well remember the headaches and heartaches associated with that time. Kids in middle school are in the midst of a massive change, not quite teenagers yet but no longer innocent children anymore either. Their bodies are growing like wildfire and their hormones are beginning to kick in and life is a mass of confused and often terrifying emotional challenges. To deal with all of this, kids generally find safety in cynicism and sarcasm and detachment. They adopt a herd mentality, refusing to admit to liking anything outside the scope of what the “group” has deemed acceptable. Anyone who steps outside the norm is singled out and ruthlessly demolished by the rest. Conformity is the rule, and weakness is attacked quite viciously. Amidst this chaos and mayhem, adults are viewed with disgust and disdain for the most part. 

So how can adults work to address the problems inherent in this transitional phase, combat bullying and assist our kids in dealing with the important issues with which they are wrestling? We cannot do it alone. We need an ally, young enough to slip inside the wall of credibility, and capable of speaking the same language as our kids, while at the same time possessing the wisdom and skill of a trained adult counselor. For years, we at Mobile Ed have known this demand existed and for years we have sought just the right perfect individual to tackle this important job.

anti bullying middle school assemblyWell, we are now “over the top” excited to announce that we have succeeded in that quest at long last. We have found exactly the right person to speak to kids in this troubled period of their lives in language they understand, with credibility they will respect, and with the skills to assist our kids in finding a secure and meaningful path through this trying time.

middle school anti bulling programMeet Mr. Peace!

Since 2006, Kevin "Mr. Peace" Szawala has been traveling to schools and community centers, spreading his passionate message about peace, love, equality and tolerance to hundreds of thousands of people of all ages. He has created four different assembly programs, each focusing on a different topic: bullying, diversity, leadership and making positive life choices.

And Kevin is exceptionally gifted at doing what he does. Lauded by students and administrators alike, Kevin is uniquely positioned to speak to kids in their own language in such a way that he connects with them and they listen. But he is also uniquely qualified to address the issues that are of concern during these years with positive counseling techniques honed over the last several years and is now ready to go mainstream with a strong and urgently needed packages of constructive content.

Kevin is, quite simply, an amazing young man.

We are proud to add him to our growing team of professional speakers at Mobile Ed and we are certain you will want to have him visit you, not just once, but time and time again.

Anti Bullying Shows to Kick Off The New Year

  
  
  
  
  

bullying assembly schoolWell it's now July and everyone is out enjoying the great weather we sincerely do hope! Enjoy the summer while you can because before you know it the gusty cooler weather of Fall will be upon us.

Of, course, with Fall will come the resumption of school, Sorry to remind you, nut it will come whether we like it or not.

So, it is. Like it or not, the right time to think about how to get the new year off to a good start. There is no better way than with a fun and exciting assembly program to welcome the kids back and let them know the year at school is going to be just as much fun as was the summer.

But what kind of assembly to choose?

Today, in life, young people face enormous pressure and often need more than the three R's to know how to effectively deal with life's challenges and how to deal with each other and the relationships they form. Part of education for our young is to teach them how to be ready for these challenges, and how to interact in a healthy manner with each other.school assembly character counts

Mobile Ed offers several shows that are outrageously fun and perfect for kicking off the year with a bang but which also help to instill the strong values and conduct we all want to see in our young.

Inspector Iwannano carries the time worn and well respected message found in the Character Counts program developed so many years ago and still powerfully effective today. Respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, citizenship and caring are all indisputably good values to attain and hold onto as we grow into adults. These same attributes are the very components of the totally non controversial Character Counts program and they are made clear and fully and easily understandable in the wildly fun and exciting Inspector Iwannano.

But today we also face the challenge of bullying which is responsible for misery and heartache in so many of our children as they learn the lessons of life. Again, in this area Mobile Ed offers a variety of amazing programs to assist.

bullying school assemblyStronger Than a Bully, You've Got a Friend, and The No Bully Zone, plus Stand Up/Step In, all offer slightly different but active takes on this perplexing problem, while doing so in a manner that is giggly good fun and also emotionally satisfying.

Within the sphere of training young people to deal with bullies there have been different techniques developed and propagated. As always, the best have risen to the top. Heading this list are two different bu similar approaches. One was created by the Olweus group and remains popular. Another was started more recently by the esteemed New York psychologist Izzy Kalman and is termed the Bullies to Buddies approach. Both work very well. In the case of our programs, Stronger Than a Bully together with You've Got a Friend follows the Bullies to Buddies approach while The No Bully Zone is based on the techniques espoused by the Olweus group. Either of these make great kickoffs to an amazing school year and all do so with great aplomb and lots of fun.

Meantime, let us not forget our older children who need help with bullying issues perhaps more so than do our young.

Middle School bullying programNew this year, and for the first time, Mobile Ed will be offering a a series of bullying and character trait programs specifically designed to speak directly to our young in Middle Schools and High Schools, Anyone with children entering or living through these stressful year knows and will nod their heads in sage agreement that Middle School is one of the toughest periods in the lives of children and one in which many habits are set for life.

But children at this age cannot be treated like babies, nor do they often respond to adults whom they often regard with cynical suspicion. Mobile Ed has acquired the services of a rising star in this field, perfectly suited in age, wisdom, dynamic talent, understanding and empathy to speak directly to Middle School students and relate to them in a peer friendly manner that has proven to reach them when nothing else can.

Buulying assembly Middle SchoolNext week we will release details of this exciting new talent, who goes by the name Mr. Peace. With four different programs to meet four specifically different needs (Bullying, Leadership, Positive Life Choices and Diversity) Mr. Peace is likely to be exactly the program your Middle School students need at this formative moment in their lives. More news about this exciting new performer will be made available along with specific program descriptions and available tour dates next week

Regardless of what your needs and what age your students are, Mobile Ed now stands ready to give your new school year a really strong and powerfully effective kickoff and help set your students on the path to a wonderfully productive year ahead and in the years to follow.

But please do not delay. Call us soon for your date. These programs are always in high demand, especially for early in the year! Dates are filling fast!

But since June 30,1993, Geoff has also served as Mobile Ed's Midwest Regional Manager. During that time he has arranged more than 17,000 school assemblies! If your school is in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky or any of a whole bunch of other states from Cleveland to Denver you may have spoken to him at some point. But we bet you didn't know you were talking to the President, did you?

 

Congratulations on your Anniversary Geoff!

The Critics Have Spoken – Toma's School Assemblies Rock!

  
  
  
  
  

great school assemblyMy apologies as it has been a long time since we commented in our blog. Mea culpa...all I can say is that the Spring time is very busy around Mobile Ed getting everything lined up and in order for the new school year.

But in the meantime we continue to receive countless great reviews for our school shows, and I wanted to share a few today.

One of our best veteran performers is Tom Johnson, known to his legions of fans as Toma the Mime!

Tom created and performs our Young Authors Day creative writing program and his presentation is magnificent. What would you expect from a performer who was personally trained by great French mime Marcelle Marceau?

Here is a recent appraisal of Young Authors Day from Rachelle Cook in Harbor Springs, Michigan:

It was wonderful! This was our 2nd time having Toma the Mime and we can't wait to have him back again in years to come!”

 Thomas Edison school showBut Tom also offers a few other equally awesome school shows. He added Thomas Edison to his bag of tricks several years ago, and more recently helped create our amazing Air:The Invisible Wonder.

Here is a review of Thomas Edison from Christine Boyer at the Center Road School:

"We love having Thomas Edison visiting our school (Center Road School in Vernon) every year. One of our highlights for 4th grade :)"

Finally, here are some comments in regard to Air:The Invisible Wonder:

"The show was great!! The presentation was superb. The children were engaged and they were eager to try to make their own inventions. They had lots of questions after the performance and excited to find out new ways to discover the wonders of Air."

Vanessa Bryant - PS 140 Jamaica, NY

"According to the feedback I received from staff, this was the overall favorite assembly all year. I would like to consider the presenter for other venues."

Candace Harrison - Bow Elementary School, Bow, NH

It is true, and both schools and kids adore Tom. You will, too, with any of his outstanding shows. But don't wait too long as his tour for next year is already filling in!

The Day Lincoln Died and Other Tales From School Assemblies

  
  
  
  
  

lincoln school show picture resized 600Today is April 14, a day most Americans know as the day in which they madly scramble to finish their taxes before the deadline for filing tomorrow, April 15. But something of great moment happened on this day, a long time ago.

On April 14, 1865, it was Good Friday of the Easter weekend. The Civil War had just ended and celebrations and jubilance were in evidence all over at least the North of the United States, where a people were weary from four years of warfare and carnage and death.

No where was this more evident than in the nation's capitol of Washington, DC.

lincoln school show pic 2That morning, at Ford's Theatre in Washington events took place that set in motion a plan that would rock the country and the world and the ripples from which still affect us today.

At the theatre there was a bustle in the air. One play had just closed, and another was scheduled to open that night. The outgoing piece had starred a well known actor, John Wilkes Booth, the less critically acclaimed younger brother of the greatest actor in the country, Edwin Booth. It was said that watching Edwin Booth perform a work by Shakespeare was like reading the work by flashes of lightning. The new play opening that night was called Our American Cousin, and starred an audience favorite named Laura Keene. A packed house was assured for the opening.

That morning, young John Wilkes Booth stopped by the theatre just one last time to pick up his mail. There he learned that it had been announced that the President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, would attend the opening with his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln. With the revelation of that news, a series of events was set in motion that would lead to the assassination that night of the great American leader, and the beginning of the largest manhunt in American history. lincoln school show pic 3 resized 600John Wilkes Booth would return to the theatre that night and fire a bullet into the head of the president who would die the following morning. Booth would elude capture for another twelve days before being run down by troops in a barn thirty miles from Washington and shot dead. This assassination would lead to the near deification of the president, and to untold suffering for the newly subdued Southern states. The affects of these events carry great weight even today.

At Mobile Ed, we have been telling this story along with many others from history, to excited students all over the country for more than twenty five years. Doubtless, there are children hearing these stories from us today, whose parents heard the same stories from us when they were in school. The stories were exciting then, and they are exciting now. Students, usually not interested in history at all, will hang, literally on the edge of their seats, as they hear again the tale of the death of a president or of a young girl, blind, deaf and dumb, and her first communication with another human. They will sit dumbstruck at hearing the story of a young African American who rose to lead the country out of racial intolerance and toward the light of freedom, or of the life of founding father Ben Franklin. They will be amazed at the story of a young man from Ohio, raised in Michigan, and how his ideas brought light to the world.

History is full of grand adventures and amazingly exciting stories. These stories inspire greatness in our young. But these stories require a great story teller to truly motivate and hold the attention of the young. Mobile Ed hires the very best story tellers and actors that we can find, so that the stories we bring to your children are illuminated …..as though by “flashes of lightning”.

It has been said that it is impossible to truly know where you are going if you do not know where you have been. In the race to educate students today in science and technology, we at Mobile Ed, while we applaud that goal, also feel that teaching our students about their past is also of paramount importance. We hope you will feel the same way.

lincoln school show pic 4 resized 600And today, knowing him as well as we do, we take a moment to mourn the premature and tragic passing of Abraham Lincoln, perhaps the greatest American president ever, and certainly a true and authentic genius who also happened to possess a heart of gold and a brilliant sense of humor. Rest in Peace, Mr. Lincoln. We will do our best to be sure your memory is never forgotten.

Ben Franklin School Assembly Rocks Indiana School

  
  
  
  
  
Ben Franklin School and Library showHere at Mobile Ed, we all know what a great performer David Mitchell is, but we often forget that not everyone is as aware of this as we are.

 David does several shows for us, including two great anti-bullying programs (Stronger Than a Bully and You've Got a Friend), as well as a super mathematics show called Imathimation and an awesome reading show called Reading! More Than Words!. But he is perhaps best known for the first show he brought to us, an absolutely perfect program about one of our Founding Fathers, Ben Franklin. The Ben Franklin show holds a special place in Dave's heart, and it shows every time he performs this masterpiece.

Just recently students at Batesville Intermediate School in Indiana were treated to a performance of Ben Franklin by David, and the reception was understandably wild. Here are some of the remarks we heard from teachers and staff there.

Wonderful!!!! Dave has a real gift. All four presentations were very well-received by students and staff. It's only 3 p.m. and I've had numerous teachers stop by to tell me that this "was the best program" that we have had in years. As the organizer of our Arts in Education programming, it was a pleasure to host such an easy going, professional and self-sufficient artist!”

Very enjoyable... Performer did an outstanding job!”

This was one of the best programs we have had! It was very educational and enjoyable.”

One of the best visiting performers I've ever seen! The students were engaged during the entire presentation. “

Wonderful presenter...perfect for the part! Students were very attentive with no discipline problems throughout the presentation. Well done!”

This show was EXCELLENT! The kids were engaged the entire time and the performer was very funny and entertaining! We loved this performance.”

Ben Franklin School and Library show 2Now we all know David is awesome, but it is always nice to hear it from our happy clients!

And happily for some, David will be available again next year to almost all of our client schools across much of the country. Now David does leave off on touring to spend time with his family at home in Tennessee during the summer months, but if you happen to operate a library or summer camp in Tennessee or Kentucky then you can still take advantage of this amazingly talented performer and any of his great shows during the summer. Let us know if you would like further details on bringing Ben Franklin (ooops, we mean David Mitchell!) to your site sometime soon!

Kidz Science Safari Hands On Science Assembly to Tour Again in 14-15

  
  
  
  
  

best scool science showsJust a quick bit of excitement this morning! This year we premiered our flagship school assembly The STEM Museum. That program has sold out quickly and is selling out quickly again for 2014-15. And well it should! This cutting edge school assembly brings a hands on science museum, complete with state of the art 3D printing and robotics into your school for the day. Already a major hit, with universal acclaim following its groundbreaking tour, The STEM Museum is being further improved in several ways for the new year, including the addition of the fabulous NAO Robot.

But not to be forgotten in the rush to glorify The STEM Museum, are our two other mobile hands on science experiences – Kidz Science Safari and the newly redesigned Physics Museum.

Tell Me More About The STEM MUSEUM

The latter, The Physics Museum, was an outgrowth of our renowned school show Physics is Fun, and has been touring in an expanded hands on format for a few years now, under that title. But for 2014-2015, we will be making some really exciting changes to this already great show. The Physics Museum will retain many characteristics from before but will be improved and expanded leaving behind all portions of the previous Physics is Fun program. In the meantime, Physics is Fun will also receive an overhaul bringing it into a brand new form for the new year as well. All very exciting! More details to come in the months ahead.STEM school assembly

But we have more news as well!

Our third mighty all school hands on workshop event is Kidz Science Safari which toured nationally on a limited basis in 2012-2013. Last year this tour was maintained solely in the great state of Texas. But this grand show will, in 2014-2015 once again take to the road and visit schools in many of the other states we service. We are pleased to announce the program, already awesome, has now been improved even more with new exhibits and activities which did not appear the last time the program toured.

So, 2014-2015 is shaping up to be a banner year in school shows. Mobile Ed, long the leader in high quality school science assemblies, now has some great science experience for virtually everyone, from our simple 45 minute presentations such as The Magic of Science and Chemistry! It Really Matters! to our always popular Sky Dome Planetarium and Earth Dome (aka The Earth Balloon) programs on through to the stunning wonder of our mighty trio of all day science extravaganzas The STEM Museum, The Physics Museum and Kidz Science Safari.

Give us a call soon and let's see what we can do for you!

In Memory of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.

  
  
  
  
  

Martin Luther King Jr school show resized 600Just a short note today to remind you that April 4 marks a dark day in American history. Today in 1968, the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. was slain by an assassin in Memphis, Tennessee.

Dr. King is now an icon of the Civil Rights movement in this country and his legacy of peaceful, non violent protest has become an inspiration to oppressed people across the globe. His eloquent words still echo in the grand consciousness of our nation and help light the path ahead as we bend the arc of history slowly toward progress and a better, more equitable life for all. His place is secure for all time as one of the greatest leaders in American history.

And today, we take a moment to honor this great man.

martin luther king school assemblyHis loss haunts us to this day, as we wonder what other mighty tasks he might have fulfilled in life, and yet, we take comfort in the thought that in death his power grew even greater. His martyrdom, as is often the case with the truly great, magnified and expanded his influence in ways impossible to ignore. Rather than silencing the man, the assassin's bullet served only to inflate the influence of Dr. King in ways impossible to ignore, and thus served to cement the impact of his success. The equal rights advances of the past several decades all, in one way or another, stem from the work and legacy of this man, and others of his generation, who stood proudly against intolerance and injustice and refused to be cowed by the brutality of past ignorance.

So, today, we take a moment to reflect on this man and his legacy. And we take note that though evil is relentless, and may sometimes triumph in the short term, that justice and light are stubborn, and that the primary path of human progress toward a better world for all will eventually carry the day.

Thank you Dr. King.

If you would like to honor the memory of Dr. King, and bring him to life before your students, contact us for information on Mobile Ed's Martin Luther King school assembly program. Dates are now available for the 2014-2015 school year.

STEM And The Future Of Educational Assembly Programs

  
  
  
  
  

stem school showHave you heard about STEM? It stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. If you have not heard the term before, you will shortly, make no mistake.

These four components are integral to the future of education in the United States. With technology and science rapidly coming to dominate our economic future, and with stiff competition in these fields coming from many other nations, American educators and school districts are rushing to fill the void and produce a new generation well schooled and literate in these expanding fields.

Mobile Ed is, as always, ahead of the curve.

From our very inception Mobile Ed has always practiced innovation in the field of educational school shows and assemblies. In fact, we virtually invented the field. Back in 1979, when Larry Thompson first created The Amazing World of Light, school assemblies were essentially composed of a variety of magicians, jugglers and story tellers. Those early programs were (and still are) fun, but they broke no real ground nor made any educational impact on children. Rather they were a fun way to interject a little levity into school life. Enter Mobile Ed Productions.the amzing world of light school show

Founded in Michigan with the introduction of The Amazing World of Light, swiftly followed by The Wonderful World of Chemistry, Mobile Ed offered schools something they had not really seen before. Mobile Ed offered schools the new opportunity to have a show that was fun and entertaining but was also educational and provided a boost to that process.

The introduction of science based school assemblies in the late 70s and early 80's was rapidly followed by an expansion into shows that supported Social Studies and History and other key curriculum areas.

kidz science safari school showKnowing that kids learn better from actual hands on involvement, Mobile Ed added hands on workshop formats to many shows.

Competitors watched and began to copy what we were doing, but Mobile Ed remained the leader in educational assemblies, nationwide, and continues in that role today, offering more than 30 different programs across the majority of states in the country.

This year we proved once more that innovation is part of our DNA with the introduction of our sell out success The STEM Museum. This day long event broke the mold in school assemblies by eliminating the presentation show altogether in favor of a full day of outstanding, cutting edge hands on activity stations the entire school can use. We also added Kidz Science Safari, another all day hands on activity science program. And for 2014-2015 we are moving a step further ahead with plans to revisit our stalwart Physics is Fun, spinning off the extended day workshops into a newly improved and expanded Physics Museum, a counterpart to the STEM Museum.

The Stem Museum school showThese science based shows, rife with hands on activities sure to engage the minds of the young and propel them forward with excitement.

But in the midst of all this we have not forgotten the essential basic programs that schools have relied upon from us for the last thirty plus years. We recently went out to visit Tom Johnson at one of our client schools here in Michigan. Tom, for any who have not had the pleasure, is one of our stable of many superb school show performers, that we consider the very best school show performers in the entire business.

Tom created our wonderful Young Authors Day, and also portrays a wonderful Thomas Edison. But on this particular day we caught up to him engaged in his favorite Mobile Ed science show – The Invisible Wonder:Air. And a great show it is! Here is a clip we just put together from that performance.

 

So, whether in your quest for school shows that support your curriculum you find yourself in the market for a cutting edge hands on event that will rock your school, or whether you are seeking a more traditional presentation that will have your kids laughing and learning at the same time, Mobile Ed has you covered.

We do “wow” really good!

Give us a call. Let's bring some “wow” to your school!
