NBA legend and Oscar award-winning writer/producer, Kobe Bryant paid a special visit to Oxford Preparatory Academy in Mission Viejo, California. The students at the Academy have had episodes of  Kobe’s Granity Studios’ no. 1 Kids/Family Apple podcast, “The Punies,” implemented into their studies to make their learning experience more fun. This new learning technique focuses on listening and writing in. Students have created interactive projects to show what all they have learned in accordance with Howard Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences. Bryant’s visit consisted of playing games with the students and he even participated in the lesson plan! In honor of the holiday season, Bryant gifted the students with a donation of books for their school library to promote the power importance of reading. Check out photos from the special day below!
