Partner Morning Meeting
Curiosity, wonder and magic can really improve motivation for learning and raise standards. Matthew is living and academic proof that such approaches really do work. Probably the world’s only school-based ‘Agent of Wonder’, Matthew’s research is all about strategies and structures that generate wonder and curiosity and their effect on engagement and learning. Whether it is the creation of the awesome ‘Wonder Room’ in what was effectively a large cupboard in an inner-city school to a full scale ‘Wonder Maze’ (‘Every school should have one’ – The Guardian) to school trails of philosophical questions to ‘Cabinets of Curiosities’ full of magic and wonder, Matthew has the experience to show how all schools can use such ideas to enhance learning and motivation, the academic research to back it up and the flair as a presenter to help schools make their own magic real.
