Thrival Necessities:                                                                              Survival Necessities:

Welcome to the INSTEAD Educational Programme, a transformative initiative designed to guide students in the accurate discovery and development of their innate strengths, talents, and learning styles. Our program seeks to address the pervasive issue of unrealized potential and its associated challenges, offering a solution to empower students on their journey of self-discovery.


Holistic Approach: INSTEAD embraces a holistic approach, recognizing that personal

development extends beyond conventional academic measures.

Admirable Legacy Plan: Central to our program is the creation of an Admirable

Legacy Plan, encouraging students to reflect on coherence, mattering, and purpose

in their lives.

What gives life meaning?
Coherence: Your life will make sense. You will have a variety of powerful, steady and reliable pillars/roles to support you through difficult life challenges.
Mattering: You will discover how to matter, in a positive way, to yourself, your loved ones, to the world and to history.
Purpose: You will learn how to set achievable goals towards creating the legacy that you want to be remembered for.

Imagine deep and accurate self-knowledge of who you are, what your passions are and what your admirable legacy plans are. If everyone had such knowledge, imagine: How much easier would it be to find, not only a compatible life partner, but your soulmate?  How much easier would it be to find a career that you are passionate about, where work is getting paid to play? 

Global Applicability: We advocate for the global implementation of INSTEAD, aligning with subjects like science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics (STEAM), ensuring a universal approach to self-discovery.

Multi-faceted Evaluation: The program incorporates various indicators, including Emotional Intelligence, Practical Intelligence, and Multiple Intelligences, providing a robust foundation for students' self-discovery.

Safety and Additional Modules: INSTEAD integrates safety modules and supplementary content covering diverse aspects such as anti-bullying and stress management, demonstrating a commitment to comprehensive development.

Integration of Educational Approaches: We propose evaluating and combining elements from educational philosophies like Montessori, Mastery Learning, and Flow Psychology, showcasing a thoughtful consideration of diverse teaching methodologies.

Technological Integration: INSTEAD leverages cutting-edge technologies such as Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and virtual reality systems, ensuring a forward-looking approach to talent exploration and development.

Areas for Consideration:

Implementation Clarity: To enhance transparency, INSTEAD is committed to providing detailed information on teaching methods, assessment criteria, and resource requirements, ensuring a clear understanding of the program's implementation.

Measurable Outcomes: The program will define specific, measurable objectives and success criteria, strengthening the proposal and facilitating the assessment of its effectiveness.

Parental Involvement: Acknowledging the importance of active parental involvement, INSTEAD aims to foster stronger collaboration between educators and parents, enhancing the program's impact on students.

Cultural Adaptability: As we aspire for global applicability, INSTEAD emphasizes adaptability to diverse cultural contexts, ensuring relevance and inclusivity.

Integration with Existing Curricula: INSTEAD will seamlessly integrate with existing curricula and educational systems, facilitating a smooth transition and broader acceptance within established frameworks.

Teacher Training: Recognizing the pivotal role of teachers, INSTEAD is dedicated to providing comprehensive training, ensuring educators are well-equipped to facilitate the program and support students effectively.

In conclusion, the INSTEAD Educational Programme holds promise as a transformative solution for personal development. Ongoing refinement in areas of implementation clarity, measurable outcomes, and cultural adaptability will contribute to its success in empowering students worldwide. Join us on this journey towards unlocking the full potential of every student.

A "Flipped classroom is an instructional strategy and a type of blended learning that reverses the traditional educational arrangement by delivering instructional content, often online, outside of the classroom and moves activities, including those that may have traditionally been considered homework, into the classroom. In a flipped classroom model, students watch online lectures, collaborate in online discussions, or carry out research at home and engage in concepts in the classroom with the guidance of the instructor."

"Mastery Learning is, simply put, an approach to teaching that requires students to attain a pre-defined level of proficiency in a topic before they can move on to the next topic in a course... This approach is particularly effective and vital in any course where the content builds on prior learning. The idea has been around for decades, but it has been challenging to implement until recently. Today’s instructional technology tools can be used to make the Mastery Learning approach far more achievable than it was in the ‘pre-tech’ classrooms of the past."

Learning How to Learn: Powerful mental tools to help you master tough subjects
"About this course: This course gives you easy access to the invaluable learning techniques used by experts in art, music, literature, math, science, sports, and many other disciplines. We’ll learn about the how the brain uses two very different learning modes and how it encapsulates (“chunks”) information. We’ll also cover illusions of learning, memory techniques, dealing with procrastination, and best practices shown by research to be most effective in helping you master tough subjects."

Mathematics made easy and fun for everyone!

"Throughout Scott [Flansburg]’s travels Scott proves his capacity to perform high-speed addition, subtraction, multiplication, square roots and even cube roots. More important than showing others the skills that he has acquired, he wants to show others that they already have the ability to perform seemingly difficult math problems without a calculator. Using Scott’s nontraditional tactics, he has learned that any student or professional who needs to use math in their daily life is only hindered by the calculator instead merely using their brain."
