Today, with the rapid changes in the world knowledge base and fundamental technology shifts in what is called the 4th Industrial Revolution, creativity has become a key skill for both teachers and youngsters to re-imagine themselves in our evolving world. FableVision Learning, founded by Peter H Reynolds, has a strategic mission to support teachers in this, with professional development, tools and a community of practice. FableVision is working with districts across the country to expand creativity and self-awareness in the classroom.
Peter H Reynolds, NY Times best-selling author/illustrator, is heralded for his campaign to “create bravely.” Peter’s first book The North Star, published in 1997, was inspired not only from his own experiences as a learner, but from 10 years of classroom visits during his tenure at Tom Snyder Productions, the pioneer of technology in the classroom. Dr Jane Goddall wrote the tribute to The North Star saying, "If only every individual could find and follow his or her own star - and be encouraged to do so. How different the world would be. The North Star moves us in that direction."
Peter’s subsequent books hit a nerve with teachers, from The Dot, Ish, Word Collector and Say Something, who began using the books in classrooms to set the scene for experiments in creativity and social emotional well-being. One grassroots creativity implementation blossomed into International Dot Day, now celebrated by millions around the world.
Today the philosophy of those books underpin everything FableVision does.

Supporting program goals is Peter’s not-for-profit The Reynolds Center for Teaching Learning and Creativity.
