What is StrengthbasedEDU?
#StrengthBasedEDU serves as a resource to educators, students, parents and communities seeking a positive approach to teaching and learning where individuals seek to understand strengths and talents first and foremost. This approach leverages an ethic of care for the individual while embracing the power of relationships and relationship building. A few examples of what a strength-based approach might look like in a learning setting include:
Collaborative trust in one another's talents and strengths
Starting with the learner's talents and strengths
Discovering passions and starting a journey
Appreciation for individual experiences
Embracing change and transformation
