Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. For young people today, new information is generally no more than a mouse-click away. Knowledge is readily there for the taking if kids simply know how to appropriately access it and effectively make use of it. In this context, many of the most useful and important things that youngsters can learn center on discovery, analysis and problem-solving how do kids get the "right" information and make proper use of it. What questions should be asked? How does one assess veracity? How does one weigh alternatives? How are decisions best arrived at? How does one decide when aims can be accomplished independently, and if help is needed, how does one go about enlisting support? Above all, how can goals be achieved ethically and with regard to the greater good. In an enticing new world filled with excitement, mystery, and danger, "Magi Nation" addresses these vital learning goals. Tony, Edyn and Strag along with their human and decidedly non-human colleagues model their successful, and sometimes less than successful, attempts to analyze difficult situations, set appropriate goals, and creatively seek solutions to the dire dilemmas in which they find themselves. In the course of a series of intriguing codes, riddles and other puzzles that Tony, Edyn and Strag are presented with along the way, viewers are furthermore given the engaging opportunity to not only observe others go through the problem solving cycle, but to make use of their unique knowledge base and burgeoning problem solving skills to address conundrums on their own. The specific educational objectives are to help viewers learn to thoughtfully assess situations and logically set appropriate and responsible goals, To aid viewers to develop techniques associated with critical thinking and creativity in decision-making and problem solving with which to act, To encourage viewers to attain the independence and initiative to act on what is ethically right, and the determination and persistence to carry their aims through to fruition - even in the face of opposition, To teach viewers to accept and appreciate unique abilities and insights in themselves and others, and to employ teamwork to capitalize on individual strengths and overcome individual weaknesses, to encourage viewers to assimilate positive personal qualities, prosocial behaviors and life skills intended to better equip them to take responsible and functional roles within their environment, to increase viewers' core knowledge base and appreciation of the world around us by presenting information across a range of academic areas, including mathematics, language, earth science, ecology, botany, geography and meteorology.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. For young people today, new information is generally no more than a mouse-click away. Knowledge is readily there for the taking if kids simply know how to appropriately access it and effectively make use of it. In this context, many of the most useful and important things that youngsters can learn center on discovery, analysis and problem-solving how do kids get the "right" information and make proper use of it. What questions should be asked? How does one assess veracity? How does one weigh alternatives? How are decisions best arrived at? How does one decide when aims can be accomplished independently, and if help is needed, how does one go about enlisting support? Above all, how can goals be achieved ethically and with regard to the greater good. In an enticing new world filled with excitement, mystery, and danger, "Magi Nation" addresses these vital learning goals. Tony, Edyn and Strag along with their human and decidedly non-human colleagues model their successful, and sometimes less than successful, attempts to analyze difficult situations, set appropriate goals, and creatively seek solutions to the dire dilemmas in which they find themselves. In the course of a series of intriguing codes, riddles and other puzzles that Tony, Edyn and Strag are presented with along the way, viewers are furthermore given the engaging opportunity to not only observe others go through the problem solving cycle, but to make use of their unique knowledge base and burgeoning problem solving skills to address conundrums on their own. The specific educational objectives are to help viewers learn to thoughtfully assess situations and logically set appropriate and responsible goals, To aid viewers to develop techniques associated with critical thinking and creativity in decision-making and problem solving with which to act, To encourage viewers to attain the independence and initiative to act on what is ethically right, and the determination and persistence to carry their aims through to fruition - even in the face of opposition, To teach viewers to accept and appreciate unique abilities and insights in themselves and others, and to employ teamwork to capitalize on individual strengths and overcome individual weaknesses, to encourage viewers to assimilate positive personal qualities, prosocial behaviors and life skills intended to better equip them to take responsible and functional roles within their environment, to increase viewers' core knowledge base and appreciation of the world around us by presenting information across a range of academic areas, including mathematics, language, earth science, ecology, botany, geography and meteorology.
