THE WONDER APPROACH TO LEARNING

07/21/2015,

This summer I enjoyed reading “Educar en el asombro” written by Catherine L’Ecuyer, a Canadian educational consultant. It is a very interesting book, full of important messages for parents and educators. It has already been translated to Italian, Korean, and very soon it will be translated to Portuguese and hopefully also English.

As in the previous books recommended by World Kids ( A. Cury  &   Niel I. Bernstein) L’Ecuyer focuses on the challenges of educating nowadays, in a hectic, demanding  and overwhelming environment, with the excesive presence of technology.

You can read Catherine L’Ecuyer’s theory at this interesting article in Frontiers. I love how reading her book helps us acknowledge the natural learning process of children, and how it helps us understand why we ought to respect their rhythm, innocence, sense of beauty and mystery.

The Wonder Approach to Learning is a wonderful theory and the article should be read by parents and educators. I also found very intersting L’Ecuyer’s constant mention of the attachment theory and how important it is for a child to develop a secure attachment relationship with his/her principal caregiver throughout early childhood.

You can find more information about Catherine L’Ecuyer work in her blog  Apego & Asombro
