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.
K-12 classrooms everywhere are your natural audience.
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 on-demand instructional materials for educators and websites with vast repositories of PDFs, teacher guides, and 'interactives' -- but how many of the more than 3 million U.S. teachers use them?
Delivering on your mission to spark curiosity, spread wonder, and deepen understanding across diverse communities and learners is hard. But when you center real feedback from teachers- and craft a strategy that responds to their needs and obstacles- you create experiences that will be used and will scale your mission. Work with Wondrus to develop and execute educational strategies that:
the unique value of the content that resides in your collections, archives, and exhibits.
to feedback and data from educators representing diverse classrooms and learners with unique needs and motivations.
positive relationships with K-12 educators and caregivers by demonstrating you understand their needs and challenges.
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, engage a volunteer force, and deliver solutions. We often focus on capacity building, empowering your volunteers and staff to use the principles that enhance engagement and sticky learning in everything from digital materials to live, in-person training.
"Before Planet Word even had doors, Wondrus spotlighted the connection points and avenues for reaching students and teachers for each planned gallery, creating an invaluable framework that guides our education approach and team in supporting and interacting with school-aged children. Beyond the actionable education wisdom, the Opportunities Report is a rich resource we continue to mine for fundraising, staff onboarding and shaping our strategy for creating educational resources that meet the needs of children, and their caregivers and teachers."
