It seems fitting during election season with all its rhetoric and bluster to revive one of the first animated videos I ever did – a video about critical thinking. As far as the animation and graphics go it’s very crude, but the key message, about learning to think critically, is just as important now as it was 6 years ago when I released this. Just as I did back then, I can’t help but think that if more people learned to think critically our society would be so much the better for it. With 140,000 + views on YouTube and nearly 49,000 on Vimeo I can only hope that the video has been useful and informative.
For those interested, I actually made this video with Apple Keynote (Apple’s PowerPoint equivalent) and several years ago I made a tutorial about making simple animations like this video with Keynote that can be found here.
