As part of its commitment to delivering an engaging, standards-aligned curriculum for K–12 students, Stride, Inc. (NYSE: LRN) is now offering more content options that feature animations with relatable characters and interactive lessons.

Through a unique partnership with Wonder Media—a mission-driven production company that creates and produces animated stories for children, tweens and teens—Stride has curated collections of diverse video content and interactive lessons in its Stride Learning Hub: a digital teaching tool that allows educators to customize their respective courses with Stride assessments and other learning tools.

“At Stride, we want every K12-powered student to be inspired,” said Niyoka McCoy, Stride’s Chief Learning Officer. “Animation is a powerful teaching tool that can make lessons come to life for our students. Through this partnership, we’re meeting students where they are with engaging content that supports their learning goals.”

In each Wonder Media lesson, the cast of likable characters teach important lessons that are designed to be age appropriate, value-driven, and positive. Students can also engage with animated stories and interactive content related to Black History Month and Women’s History Month, in addition to “Habits of Mind,” a mental health and wellness resource designed specifically for K–6 students. Wonder Media also created ten animated videos exclusively for K12-powered courses that focus on a variety of social studies topics and historical figures.

“The Wonder Media team is proud to partner with Stride on this inspiring collection of relatable and uplifting animated content,” said Terry Thoren, CEO and President of Wonder Media. “Through this partnership, students will learn social-emotional, problem solving, and critical thinking skills with relevant stories that will inspire them throughout their lives.”

Stride educators can select resources from the Wonder Media collection based on each learner’s specific needs and preferences. This includes video content and interactive lessons.
