Are you homeschooling a pre-teen or teen and wondering how to inspire them to love learning? Our guest today believes it possible to reignite teens’ natural curiosity and their fire for learning if we are open to trying a new educational approach.
Evgeniya Andrianova, mom of 2 and creator of Teen Ideas Matter, is on a mission to help teens start meaningful projects that impact the world around them. She talks about the benefits that project-based learning can provide for both kids and their parents, how to use this education approach in homeschooling and in life.
She also shares why it’s important to do project-based learning with a holistic approach, considering not just the goals and project plans but also the power of sleep, good nutrition, yoga and meditation, emotional intelligence, resilience, and growth mindset.
If you want to learn how a holistic approach to project-based learning can help your teen love learning, stay confident, and strive for greatness, you’re going to be inspired by this episode.
