12 subject-oriented sections help students learn a variety of mindfulness exercises. Students have different learning styles and interests. Through this well-rounded approach, every student can easily find an appropriate entry point and instruction that captures their interest and guides them to reduce anxiety and develop self-regulation, both essential strengths to bring improved learning outcomes.
The Inner Strength app is multi-layered. By bringing in a deep-time developmental narrative covering millions of years, teens learn how to see that their experience is the result of ongoing growth and adaptation. They expand their horizons and discover that aspects of their experience are simply part of normal brain development.
With a focus on Love, kindness, and wellbeing students learn to be kind towards themselves. With so much pressure and competition, it is essential that teens learn to cherish their uniqueness and to be gentle with their own learning curve. Students will find joy and enthusiasm in their everyday experience by following Inner Strength activities, challenges, and badge-earning competitions. They learn that they have a big heart, and that is enough to make a difference in this world.
Practically, this systems thinking approach empowers teens to navigate complexity, from growing up in the digital age, to social distancing, and the pressures of school or racial stress.
Sprints, polls, challenges, and chat functions enable students to connect with each other and find friendship and support so they can truly thrive.
