Why we use humor!

If you could recall one of your most favorite and memorable learning moments, would it be a boring and strict day in the classroom or a super-funny incident carved in your memory ever since? 

If you nodded positively in the second half of the previous sentence, you probably already know why humor is essential in learning. 

One of the main challenges educators struggle to tackle is capturing and maintaining their students’ attention. Humor plays a vital role in the learning process, as it allows teachers to engage their audience and encourages students to actively participate in the conversation. 

At James Stanfield Co, we always strive to incorporate humorous elements into our content to tickle students’ funny bones and increase the efficiency of teaching and learning in a more positive and enjoyable ambiance. Leveraging the power humor has, we seek to help educators intrigue their audience’s interest while ensuring students keep learning with the same excitement. 

Because laughing makes everything better – and learning is no exception! 

In other words, we believe you learn best when you laugh.

Our work values

The James Stanfield Company ethos is built on 4 pillars.


Who We Are

We are a team of passionate dreamers and active doers who wish to support students in acquiring essential life and social skills. During the last 40 years, we have been offering industry-leading courses that encourage Social Competence and Transition Readiness, focusing on students with cognitive, learning, and/ or behavioral difficulties. 


What We Do

We offer more than 60 programs covering topics like work-related social skills, conflict management, and relationship skills. We use Video Modeling, leveraging the talent of professional actors to depict appropriate and inappropriate responses to several social circumstances and foster vicarious social skill learning. 


Why We Do It

We firmly believe that students don’t have to learn the hard way. Instead of relying on old-fashioned and often inefficient teaching and learning methods, we harness the power of vicarious learning to help people learn in a more enjoyable, efficient, and simple way. 



Humor has an immense educational power that can make teaching and learning easier, more pleasant, and efficient. That is why we use a wide array of humorous elements in our programs to keep everyone interested and help them understand and retain more information.
