Our current online culture has completely redefined what it means to be connected. Even though we can explore the world farther and faster than ever before, the joy of actively engaging all of our senses is getting lost in the experience. So we did a bunch of research in various fields from education, parenting, and mental health, to business, marketing and design. We discovered that internal motivation, human kindness, and collective awareness are the essential pieces that bring individuals, families, and communities together.
Our research also helped us recognize that the current structures in which we learn and interact often breed anxiety and struggles for ownership. Somewhere along the way creativity, wonder and purpose have been overshadowed by the drive towards standardized thinking. We believe it's time to think differently about everything – not just education. That means thinking critically about what we own and consume, what children are capable of, and how we choose to connect. It means rethinking the very concept of creativity and how we learn.
