More than ever, teachers and librarians want to connect children and youth to the resources to enable them to flourish in today’s uncertain world as problem-solvers for the planet.
Wonder is an essential, and frequently under-estimated tool for doing this.
Consciously using and inspiring wonder, cultivates creative thinking, increases positive emotions, deepens a mindful connection to Nature and capacity-builds key skills used in innovation and entrepreneurship.
This interactive session will give you strategies for using wonder through reading and across academic subject learning, to engage your students of all ages.
You will learn:
Why wonder works to increase wellbeing;
How wonder is used in social innovation to bring new perspectives and fresh ideas to sustainability and sustainable development in communities;
What ‘wonder’ activities you can immediately initiate in your libraries and classrooms with your students.
