Education Through Entertainment
Pssst! School is starting...
Last Friday Mobile Ed performer Thomas Johnson, known to many of you by his mime name of Toma, had a really unique opportunity.
As we march inexorably toward the first days of a new school year, many of us are faced with searching out ideas for school assemblies and shows to bolster the curriculum while providing a welcome break from class time for students and teachers alike. Moreover, in these days of rising costs and shrinking budgets, field trips are more and more a rapidly fading memory for many schools. So the search is on for the best possible use of what limited funds remain in order to provide students with the best bang for the buck.
As mentioned earlier, we had a booth at the Ohio Association of Elementary School Principals conference in Sandusky, Ohio this week. We had a great time and just wanted to give an update on how things turned out.
Television technology has become an intrinsic and indisputably important part of our lives. Computers, the internet and video are on a collision course with each other and with our future. The adults of tomorrow will need to know and understand this technology in ways most of us do not, and they will need to be able to make use of the fusion between these areas in new and creative ways as they roll through the world they are inheriting. So it is important that they be introduced to some of the basics at an early point in their development that they are then able to determine the degree they may wish to delve into these brave new worlds as they progress toward career choices.
Mobile Ed Productions sends wonderful school assembly performers from Michigan (and a few other states) out on the road every year in August to begin touring to schools pretty much all over the country. It is a rambling, crazy way of life alternating between the exhilaration of performing great school shows in front of happy kids and teachers and the loneliness of empty hotel rooms and long miles on the road. Thanksgiving and other family oriented holidays, usually give us an opportunity to get home for a few well earned days with loved ones.
We like to share with you comments we receive from our clients regarding our performers. Today I have to tell you about Rojo! Rojo has been with us for many years and is one of our most dynamic performers. He is a multitalented performer and offers several different shows including Martin Luther King, Frederick Douglass, Young Authors Day, and The Magic of Science. But the program he has become best known and loved for right now is his wonderful turn as Inspector Iwannano, our stalwart defender of character development and the Pillars of Character!
