About the IMAGI-NATION Questionnaire

AIME and the IMAGI-NATION{TV} team took inspiration from the famous Proust Questionnaire to create the IMAGI-NATION Questionnaire. It features in the IMAGI-NATION{TV} segment, the 60 second challenge, in which a leader answers as many questions as possible within 60 seconds!

The set of questions made famous by Marcel Proust was said to reveal the true nature of a person. It’s a great way to understand characters or conduct ‘get-to-know-you interviews’; but some of the questions felt old-fashioned and the team wanted to know about how people reflected on the AIME values so we added a few of our own.

60 second challenge is a segment that can occur in any episode, so keep your eyes peeled! View the ’60 second challenge’ playlist

What is IMAGI-NATION{TV}?

IMAGI-NATION{TV} was created as a response to COVID-19 school closures around the globe but is continuing to hold relevance in the teaching community beyond the pandemic. The daily TV show is broadcast live on the Internet, and it’s a gift for teachers, parents and kids to help make sense of today and imagine tomorrow.

The team at IMAGI-NATION {TV} developed this program to address the problem of how to mentor kids during the school closures. Building on the mentoring program established by Jack Manning Bancroft and the AIME mentoring team, they found a very creative solution. We hope their creativity might inspire you!
