Expanded Partners

In addition to the continued offerings from the Wonder of Learning Boston professional development committee and BARIN, many of our partners and consultants continue to offer professional development and educational opportunities.

Local Partner Organizations

Our success was in large part due to the incredible network already in Boston, including many groups and organizations:

  • Documentation Studio
  • Creativity Commons at Lesley
  • Hawkins Group 
  • Beautiful Stuff
  • Project Zero
  • Rounds
  • Cadwell Collaborative
  • Early Childhood Consortium

Local Research

As part of our conversation with Tiziana Filippini, we agreed to explore the “Image of the Child in our Context.” How do we see children in Boston and New England? How do we see their rights? 

Continued Dialogues

Many teacher-researchers who have been working in this way for many years, were kind enough to share their insight and expertise. If you are looking for a workshop through BARIN and WOL, you can connect you with some of these incredible local pedagogists who shared their work at the Wonder of Learning.
