The purpose of O'Keffe EduTainment is to provide a motivational learning experience through music, dance, jokes, activites and educational games.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
O'Keffe EduTainment caters to all students from elementary school to the university level. Each experience lasts between one to two hours depending on the needs of the school or organization.
The O'Keffe EduTainment experiences include a range of activities, including learning songs to help and prepare students for an upcoming test or classwork that they receive on a daily basis and various different interactive games. There is a segment in the high school experiences that allows students to discuss their goals post-graduation including higher education or figuring out a career field that works for them depending on their desires and willingness to explore different opportunities. Following this, time can be allotted to allow students the opportunity to begin their explorations, by filling out applications or searching for prospective caeers.
HOW CAN I PREVIEW THIS EXPERIENCE?
Below is a short video of a mini-tour done for schools in the Mississippi Delta area. This video can also be found here.
WHAT ARE THEY SAYING ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE?
Students that have taken part in the O'Keffe EduTainment experience leave with a more enthusiastic view of learning. They are more willing to complete classwork and prepare and study for test. Some students have also shared that they have been motivated attend college which they had not previously considered after receiving guidance on the college application and selection process. Others decided to pursue a new career following their passions in life, after learning more about themselves.
Here is a testimonial from a recent event:
"I personally would like to thank you all for the energy and excitement you brought to our school. O'Keffe Edutainment definitely inspired my students to do well. Although there were fun and games incorporated into the show, the message sent to my students was powerful. I am most thankful for the way O'Keffe Edutainment brought my two high schools together as one who are competing for the same goal and that is to move our district to the top."
