Bringing the Classroom to Life: Boosting Student Engagement with Educational Video Production

Technology has transformed the way we learn, and video content is one of the most effective tools for increasing student engagement and deepening understanding. For TCI (Teachers Curriculum Institute), an award-winning K-12 lesson provider, video content was the next step in elevating their curriculum to meet the demands of modern education. 

Despite being new to video production, TCI understood the significance of incorporating video content into their K-12 lessons. This led to the creation of a partnership with NextThought, a company with extensive experience in video production and a track record of creating high-quality, engaging video content. With the help of NextThought, TCI was able to elevate their curriculum and provide students with immersive and dynamic learning experiences. 

NextThought’s expertise in video production was critical in creating video content that was both engaging and educational. The company helped TCI with scripting, animations, sound effects, and more to create a specific style that could be applied to multiple, large-scale projects. The use of animations, sound effects, and creative storytelling made the lessons more interactive and dynamic, capturing students' attention and keeping them interested in the subject matter.

The collaboration between TCI and NextThought was a resounding success. By combining TCI's expertise in K-12 curriculums with NextThought's experience in video production, the two educational video production companies were able to create content that was both interesting and informative, ultimately promoting a lifelong love of learning. The collaboration was so successful that TCI achieved its project goals much faster than anticipated. 


“NextThought was able to take our vision for how a video could be immersive and bring it to life. We have found NT’s project organization and communication second-to-none. We love their project updates and can easily track the entire development process. Additionally, NT's responsiveness is outstanding.  We’ve been so impressed with how quickly they’ve implemented requested changes. The collaboration between the NT team and ours has been so valuable that we've achieved our project goals much quicker than we anticipated.”

The partnership between TCI and NextThought had a profound impact on TCI’s curriculum content. The integration of video content enhanced TCI’s hands-on and blended learning lessons. The videos have been well-received by students, teachers, and educational institutions, and TCI has seen a significant boost in student engagement and satisfaction with their curriculum. NT and TCI continue to work on multiple projects together, including Spanish versions of TCI's lessons. These versions encourage greater accessibility for Spanish-speaking students.



The partnership between TCI and NextThought is an inspiring example of how a company's vision can be brought to life with the help of a video production partner. Video content can be a powerful tool for enhancing the effectiveness of educational material and increasing student engagement. If you're looking to amplify the impact of your curriculum and take your educational content to the next level, consider incorporating video into your lessons.
