Education Through Entertainment
There are many different emotions that students and staff feel at the start of the school year. Excitement, nerves, fear, and stress to name a few. This year, after over a year of isolating practices, students could be more likely to feel some sort of anxiety. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), people living with social anxiety experience intense fear in relation to at least one social situation where others might judge them. Awkward silences, performances, laughing, and meeting new people may all cause anxiety to students who suffer from it.Read More
Mobile Ed Productions, Inc. has been the leader in education-based entertainment since 1979. Passionate about education in young students, our team aims to make learning interactive and engaging for students of all ages covering a variety of subjects. 42 years later, we are now serving educators across the nation via in-person and virtual educational assemblies.
A school teacher and administrator in the Livonia Public Schools, Larry Thompson knew there was a need to make his school lessons more enjoyable for his students and saw a lack of assemblies available for schools. Thompson, as seen in this photo, was also a televised magician and sidekick to Bozo the Clown known as Mr. Whoodini. After airing the show each morning, he’d run over to his classroom to start teaching (sometimes still in his costume!). His students thought this was so cool! Larry Thompson founded Mobile Ed Productions, Inc. with his father-in-law, Norman Seay, in Redford, Michigan, back in 1979 to bring a little magic to his classroom.Read More

Though the start of fall brings us a lot of excitement at Mobile Ed Productions, we know it may also cause some feelings of stress for educators across the country.Read More
Incorporating science into your virtual school routine might seem challenging, but it’s far easier than you might think. By reading science books as part of your English class or bringing in outside programs for virtual field trips, your students will be able to learn more about science. Science is everywhere in the world around us so it’s important that students learn as much as they can about it.Read More
We understand the restrictions being put on schools all over the country regarding school assemblies and in-house field trips better than anyone. Virtual school works well for some subjects, but the absence of the traditional school assembly is sorely felt by millions of students, teachers and administrators across the country.
Now, Mobile Ed Productions is offering fully interactive virtual school assemblies!Read More

Choosing the best and most appropriate assemblies can be a challenge. Take a look at this guide to the best and most popular assemblies you could host at your own school.Read More
