Wondrus helps museums, libraries, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations create learning experiences that stick. Whether helping you create greater equity as you reach classrooms the world over or fulfill your mission of societal change, our approach to learning empowers your staff to instill a sense of wonder.
How K-12 classrooms everywhere are your natural audience today.
It’s undeniable—most students will never be able to visit your brick-and-mortar space in person. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be informed and inspired by the wonders of your collections. This is not a new idea; many organizations have invested years developing instructional materials for educators and websites with vast repositories of PDFs, videos, infographics, and articles. But are they used?
Delightful, high-impact instructional materials are hard to make, but when you create for the appropriate student level, and understand the needs of—and obstacles faced by—teachers, these materials will be used, and will scale your mission. The following objectives support the creation of remarkable learning experiences:
the unique value of the content that resides in your collections, archives, and exhibits.
lesson elements so they can be easily customized and added to any curriculum, lowering the barrier to use.
positive relationships with K-12 educators and caregivers, making your materials a staple in classrooms and homes.
We reach adult learners, too.
The same principles of pedagogy that we use to reach K-12 audiences help nonprofits and government organizations rally support for missions, inform constituents of the good work done on their behalf, and deliver solutions. We often focus on capacity building, empowering your staff to use the principles that enhance engagement and retention in everything from digital materials to live, in-person training.
