ThinkFast Interactive’s History
At ThinkFast Interactive’s inception, the goal was to use our expertise in entertainment production to develop an interesting educational program that would directly engage hundreds of individuals for the entire duration of the presentation, and for the program to be as stimulating and captivating as possible to avoid the pitfalls of typical awareness lectures and presentations. It was important to produce ThinkFast® Interactive in a manner that was team oriented to encourage participants to interact as a group, thereby shifting cultural norms as groups of peers mutually acknowledge safety facts about important awareness topics.. Employing the use of Audience Response Technology (ARS) wireless keypads was a key factor in connecting the audience to the message, promoting team play, and providing a kinesthetic experience, all of which have been shown to activate the learning centers of the brain to improve retention and promote memory recall. Combining custom awareness content with state of the art technology, age relevant entertainment, elaborate staging and a charismatic host, ThinkFast® Interactive became the culmination of our ultimate vision. Initially producing the innovative programs at the university level, since 2005 TjohnE has successfully delivered the ThinkFast Interactive program to over half a million young people including middle school, high school, and university students.
The choices young people are faced with today are absolutely mind-boggling, and the consequences of those choices can be dangerous—even potentially lethal. Our philosophy is to provide our participants with information in an exciting educational experience that carries on to the real worldin promoting choices that will promote healthy and safe young people. With an impressive, award-winning track record, ThinkFast® Interactive supplements the efforts of our program sponsors by catering to participants of all ages and interests with our state of the art technology and custom-tailored age-relevant awareness information.
