Wonder Media to Present Taylor County Schools With The National Merit Award on February 13, 2018 For Pioneering in Animation Technology
CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky., Feb. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Wonder Media Story MakerŽ allows students to instantly create an animated cartoon with their script and voice to share with their school community on YouTube and Facebook.
Wonder Media Story MakerŽ was created by Terry Thoren, the former CEO of Klasky Csupo, Inc., the company that produced the first 65 episodes of the Simpsons for Fox TV and Rugrats, the Wild Thornberrys and Rocket Power for Nickelodeon. Thoren is now the CEO of Wonder Media, USA.
Mr. Thoren will be in Campbellsville, Kentucky on February 13th to present the National Merit Award to Superintendent Dr. Roger Cook and his team of Kentucky Story Makers.
Wonder Media Story MakerŽ puts students at the helm of their own animation studio. It allows students in grades 4-12 to create their own animated lessons in the classroom. Students develop their literacy, collaboration, critical-thinking, and problem-solving skills in a medium they're already crazy about: animation!
Taylor County students are learning career ready skills by using Wonder Media Story MakerŽ to produce commercials for Kentucky business clients.
Completed projects will also join a growing network of student-produced animated stories on the Wonder Media Story MakerŽ website and YouTube channel, where schools around the country post their work for the world to see.
KBOI CBS TV in Boise, Idaho produced a prime time news piece about Wonder Media Story MakerŽ https://vimeo.com/202265107
Wonder Media produces animation for the Institute for Habits of Mind, the Barbara Sinatra Children's Center, the Betty Ford Children's Center, the Hero in You Foundation, the NALC Food Drive, the Festival of Children and the Wyland Foundation.
