The truth is that Wonder transfers power from the adults in the studio to the learners. Our goal is for children to become independent lifelong learners who fully accept they are responsible decision-makers in their learning.
We don’t allow experts inside the classroom and we’d prefer to keep teachers away too. There is not much correlation between traditional classroom teaching and learning. In fact, in many schools there may be an inverse correlation.
The mere act of listening to wise statements and sound advice does little for anyone. In the process of learning, the learner’s dynamic cooperation is required. This is why at Wonder we ground ourselves in the Socratic Method.
