With “Plugging in with a Purpose: Students Dive Deeper into SEL Through Blended Learning Experiences with Happify,” Mayerson Academy published the last of a 7 case study series surrounding Thriving Learning Communities work started in schools in 2015.
In this case study the innovative blended learning component of the Thriving Learning Communities program, Happify, is introduced in greater detail. Happify drives social and emotional learning to a deeper level through engaging online games and activities that help students find ways to practice and reflect on their use of strengths (a recent Education Week article about Happify, Eighth Graders Use Web App to Identify Their Character Strengths, describes how the gamification component is at work at Deer Park Junior/Senior High school. Deer Park implemented the Thriving Learning Community with Happify program using a Straight A Grant from the State of Ohio.)
In this new case study, students and educators at Mount Washington School in the Cincinnati Public School District describe how Happify has taken their social and emotional learning to a new level.
