Here at The Wonder Why Society our purpose is purely to allow children to benefit from the power of digital collaboration - to think and ask and learn together. When we are born, we are all naturally curious. Children learn by being playful, by working together and developing thoughts and problem solving. What is more, we learn best when we are able to drill down into the subjects we love whether that’s knitting or skyscrapers it really doesn’t matter.
Since we launched in January we have been buoyed not only by the educational benefits of working together but also by the social ones. Through the platform children from all types of backgrounds and cultures are interacting. At The Wonder Why Society everyone is anonymous and so blissfully free of any labels – they simply are like-minded 'wonderers' - working together, giving mutual support and believe me the feedback they have given each other is marvellous and heart-warming. We have heard stories from teachers heralding the absolute surprise when the quietest child in the class is suddenly motivated to take part online; the platform simply empowers them and peer to peer learning takes on a whole new level merely by taking down the walls of the classroom.
We would like to add you to the mix. To take your learners on a top-secret mission of discovery where wonder has no bounds. Come join us on our mission to put the wonder back into learning.
