For Professionals in Education

Uniquely beneficial for administrators, educational leaders, consultants, and educators, our Architect Toolkits serve as valuable resources for elevating collaboration within educator teams.

Grounded in the Plus Wonder Six Degrees of Connection framework, these toolkits offers targeted exercises designed to empower educators in any context or demographic in building and modeling robust connections and establishing a common language around partnering.

Harness the potential of the Architect Toolkits not only for small team collaboration but also as an effective tool for professional development across a school or organizational setting. Educators can enhance their connections, leading to stronger partnerships and improved collaboration, inside and outside their learning communities.

Education Connection Architects not only benefit from Plus Wonder resources but a network of thought partners working to strengthen relationships in education. Share your findings, adaptations, and projects with our Architect community and learn new ways to apply our resources in your context.

Unique to Education Connection Architects is the opportunity to participate in challenges aimed at funding continued work in the classroom with students to foster collaboration and partnering. Learn more about our latest challenge and the many other benefits of joining the Architect Program.

For Student Use

Plus Wonder curricular resources can be used in the classroom with students. For educators working with Early Elementary and Middle School students, the Explorer Toolkits offer a lighter touch and playful approach to enhancing collaboration within your class that may adapt more readily to this demographic.

For those desiring a more comprehensive exploration suitable for mature students, consider introducing the Architect Toolkits. It can align seamlessly with out-of-school programs, social-emotional learning, advisory programs, or student life exercises. The versatile nature of these toolkits makes it an ideal tool for fostering collaboration and connection beyond traditional classroom settings.
