“Every child has a genius.”

At Thrively, this statement frames everything they do. This website couples its unique, online Strength Assessment—which pinpoints each child’s individual strengths and interests across 23 factors—with curated educational activities and content that put kids at the center of their learning. Learners can explore their interests through “Pathways,” which features career paths as diverse as engineer, nurse, and DJ. They can also delve into online activities called “Sparks,” which are mapped against over 200 different interest areas.  A great resource—Thrively allows educators to create collaborative projects based on learner interests. Thrively makes authentic student-centered learning a reality.
