Things Education functions from the research-backed understanding that children learn best in an environment that gives them the space to explore, to try and fail and try again, and to discover how the world works.
Though the child is in charge of their own learning, an educator guides the child through clear learning objectives and pushes the child’s understanding forward with well-timed prompts and essential questions. This would require the educator – be it a teacher, a parent or any caregiver – to have an understanding of pedagogy and subject matter.
Through our work, we provide learning resources to build the child’s independent problem-solving abilities, develop social and emotional sensibilities, and have fun!
To ensure a rich learning environment, we empower educators by making educational research accessible and implementable in classrooms and homes.
