Fast Facts:

  • Research shows that spreading kindness and helping others can improve your own happiness (Dunn, Aknin & Norton, 2008).
  • Studies show that social media can be used to improve school community connectivity and even promote positive mental wellbeing (Allen et al., 2014; Davis, 2012; O’Reilly et al., 2018).
  • In order to develop a sense of self-worth, students, and teachers, must feel respected by and connected to their community (Morrison, 2006).
