Education & Training is an ever expanding market for voice over artists, and one of my personal favorites. It can include eLearning platforms, educational apps, interactive technology, or training & how-to videos, as well as cartoons, games, and music! Education technology continues to advance, and that means more exciting opportunities in the voice-over industry.
It can also be specific to a large range of diverse audiences, including students of all ages, volunteers, employees, or trainers and teachers themselves. Learning is also no longer limited to classrooms. You can learn in a traditional setting as easily as you can learn from home, or on the go. There are so many options! We are all constantly learning new things… at least that’s my own personal goal. I’m definitely a product of the information age.
I do have experience teaching and facilitating workshops with kids, adults, and educators, which makes me comfortable explaining topics at a pace that is understandable, without being condescending, or boring. I know what it’s like stand in a classroom full of kids, and fighting to win over their attention spans. Adults can be a tough crowd too.
My biggest fear is being this guy…
One of my favorite compliments I got from a young student was that they liked my workshops because I was real, not fake, and they were looking forward to me coming back. I take that as a good sign that I was connecting, and making a positive and effectual impact.
And the same approaches that can be used in a classroom give me an advantage when working on an education voice-over. Teachers don’t have to be a stern voice of authority. They can be fun. They can be peers. They don’t even have to be “people” (Sesame Street is the ultimate example of that).
Actually seeing the response to projects I’ve worked on is Amazing – like the kids who get excited to learn math with Zearn, where I get to play students, and other fun characters… or getting to play a super cute Kangaroo connecting to kids through humor with Learning A-Z‘s Headsprout Reading Comprehension program.
Here are some samples of education & training related projects I have worked on.
