What exactly is the purpose of Wonder Ponder?

Ellen Duthie

We receive and answer many interesting questions through our different channels (FacebookTwitteremail, as a comment on this blog...). Here is one we received recently: 

QUESTION:
'You say that your purpose is not to indoctrinate. So what are some of the 'missions' of Wonder Ponder's Visual Philosophy for Children project?'

ANSWER:
-       To give children a chance to think independently without anybody telling them what they should think or what it is better to think.

-       To give parents and children, teachers and students a chance to explore and inquire about the world together.

-       To help develop a habit of dialogue and contrasting views and perspectives, without expressing it as confrontation. 

-       To encourage imagination by suggesting possible alternative realities and thinking about them logically and in depth and detail. 

-       To give adults a tool for engaging in a non-directive dialogue with children, where they are likely to learn as much as the kids. 

-       To provide a space to thought as action, as an activity. So that one of the possible answers to the question 'What shall we do?' might be 'Let's think about something for a while' and for that option to be an attractive one.

These are just a few of Wonder Ponder's 'missions'.
