Calling all families and teachers who believe in uncovering learning opportunities in everyday moments: Wonderopolis®, the online learning destination brought to life by the National Center for Family Literacy (NCFL), is on the hunt for families and teachers to become the voice of Wonderopolis.
The Wonder Year Adventure is open to the general public and will kick off with a hunt for three families and two teachers from diverse communities across the nation to join the groundbreaking family learning site for a Wonder Year.
After receiving exclusive training from NCFL, the Wonder Families and Wonder Teachers will begin sharing their learning experiences by posting to Wonderopolis each week and igniting a conversation through their posts and responses to the visitors’ comments. Social media will also play a large role in the Wonder Year as families and teachers will promote online and offline events through channels such as Twitter and Facebook.
Wonder Teachers will become an essential part of the community, helping parents and teachers create a bridge between learning in classroom and learning at home. They will also help bring the wonder of Wonderopolis to Thinkfinity communities, drawing new voices into the conversation about uncovering learning opportunities in everyday moments.
The two Wonder Teachers will share how they bring wonder into their classrooms and will create biweekly wonder videos to be featured in classrooms and on the Thinkfinity website. Working together, the Wonder Families and Wonder Teachers will create a bridge between learning in the classroom and learning at home.
