Before reading this article, I never knew much about positive education. It is defined as education for both traditional skills and happiness. It’s purpose is to create a positive environment in an educational setting.
With positive education comes many benefits for students. Like, increase positive emotions, meaning and engagement, and decrease mental illnesses. I feel that having this environment as a student would have made learning more enjoyable for everyone. Everyone would have so interest in the topics due to the increased levels of creativity. Especially acknowledging everyone’s differences and promoting a positive atmosphere for students.
Do you believe having positive psychology would be more helpful or less for students?
