Arthur Interactive Media (AIM) Buddy Project Webinar! Register Here
For 20 seasons, the characters from the award-winning PBS series ARTHUR, have helped prepare children for success in life by modeling prosocial behaviors and emphasizing the importance of communication as they navigate the challenges of childhood with empathy, responsibility, and respect for self and others. Join members from WGBH—Boston’s public broadcaster and the producers of the award-winning ARTHUR series—as they introduce the Arthur Interactive Media (AIM) Buddy Project—a new supplemental curriculum aimed at helping young children build social, emotional, and character skills and attitudes and reducing bullying behaviors in the learning environment. AIM Buddy Project leverages the power of Arthur, interactive comics and games, and a cross-age buddy framework to encourage exploration and reflective discussions around five topics: empathy, honesty, forgiveness, generosity, and learning from others.
The AIM Buddy Project was developed by WGBH in partnership with Tufts University and with a grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
Learn how the AIM Buddy Project online comics and games, activities, cross-age buddy framework, and other resources align with the OBPP and can be used as part of a school’s bullying prevention efforts.
