How I Use It
I use this app daily to track student attendance, homework, and classroom behavior. It is easy to use after you roster in your students, and putting it up on the big screen causes students to buy in. I especially value the reports, which can be automatically e-mailed to parents, or sent home for a parent signature. This app is what I use to track student homework for report card purposes.
My Take
This isn't so much a teaching tool as a classroom management tool. I like that you can edit the positive and negative behaviors to target what is going on in your own classroom. I give positive points for homework completion, on-task behavior, good behavior for the specialist teachers, etc., and take away points for talking at inappropriate times, bad Internet etiquette, talking at inappropriate times, etc.
