About this project
Hello my name is Anthony J. Rubi, I'm working on putting together a series (7 episodes) of puppet math videos meant to help educate struggling kids (who are in high school and college), learn and retain math techniques that will help and encourage them to succeed in school. In the form of an educational sitcom.
The Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group came out with a Communication Education Journal in 2011, which was titled, A Review of Humor in Educational Settings: Four Decades of Research. In their publication, they went on to claim, “that humor is an educator’s most powerful resource to achieve a wide range of beneficial educational outcomes.”
While the American Psychological Association published an article called: How laughing leads to learning. In it they explained that, “Well-planned, appropriate, contextual humor can help students ingrain information…Humor can also peak students' interest outside the classroom…and, were more likely to enjoy the class.”
Risks and challenges
As a television producer with channel 17, who has a degree in Communication: Mass / TV / Video, I'm fully aware of the challenges that attack every production, especially once a project gets the green light and you find yourself quickly adapting and working in chaos. That's why this production (Smart Math) will be partnering with Flava Entertainment Productions, combining my broadcasting experience with their staff will make this educational series a true success.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
