This video documents the work of a team called the Misfits in a course on group learning at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
I began my animation career in 2010 while in graduate school at Harvard getting a Master Degree in Human Development and Psychology. My first efforts were 4 animations around a character named Franz, my prototypical adult learner. The first was on Universal Design For Learning and when I created it I assumed it was the only animation I’d ever make. The process was so enormously engaging for me that I went on to create three additional animations on: The Happiness Research, Flow States, and Complex Systems Theory! They are quite rough around the edges with wonky sound and low resolution. I keep them here to remind myself and others that anything worth doing is worth doing badly.
