Learning Videos

The Tony Learns course library covers basic financial understanding and introductions in two categories: ages 7 & up, and ages 12 & up. However, these are merely recommendations. Children as young as 5 have been able to follow and retain understandings taught in these courses. The animation and characters in the simple wraparound story help children easily grasp the breakdown of financial topics such as:

Earning Income  

Managing Debt  

Understanding Credit 

  Checking and Savings Accounts

  Introduction to Stocks (Part 1)

Courses are added regularly.

The courses are short (18-23 minutes for most), animated and engaging. The information is provided in a fun, digestible format that entertains as much as it teaches. Pausing along the way for fun game quizzes.

Engagement

Children are very engaged with our content. The wraparound story is fun, animated and engaging.​


We have timed our video content to fit just short of, or in the range of, the 16-24 minute attention span of the average 7 year old.


Each course has comic relief characters to insert a break in the learning while still supporting the lessons delivered.


There is a game that your child will play during the course to help them test their knowledge against fun and entertaining characters.


Information is delivered in multiple ways to ensure that the message is received:
 

  • Direct Communication:  When the character Data teaches Tony.

  • Child Perception:  When there is a cutaway that shows how Tony is processing the message.

  • Dialogue Delivery: Much of the information is delivered in the form of dialogue between characters.

  • Indirect Perception: The characters Sparrow and Sloth attempt to learn as they peek in on the lessons. They dissect the information among themselves, allowing your child to see other perceptions and have the content reinforced in a highly entertaining format.

 

The multiple message delivery methods used in these videos, provide your child with a classroom learning experience while watching entertaining, animated and educational content.

The built-in gamification factor is a MAJOR engagement tool. It’s designed to give your child the opportunity quiz against the characters, add up points and test their understanding of the information.
