How I Use It
I used the app for several months with my class. When I presented the app to the class and explained how it would be utilized they really seemed to like it. They were very interested in checking their progress when they got home and the parents also liked the access they had to it. Students had the opportunity to chose their own avatar which they were able to personalize. Throughout the day I would award students points or take points away using my cell phone. We set goals as a class regarding the number of points that they earned as a class. They also would set individual goals. It was an effective tool.
I think it was an excellent tool that can be very effective in the classroom. The students had their own login to the website as did the parents. I was able to also make comments to students regarding their day which was great for motivating them. The only problem I ran into was when I forgot to consistently use the app. There were days that I neglected to use the app. The program was very easy to use and I did like the interaction with the students and the parents.
