Honolulu, HI (PRWEB) August 12, 2009
uBoost Inc, the nation's premier online Student Recognition and Rewards Platform, announced that it will be giving teachers free accounts to the uBoost Express Program. Teachers can register for an account by visiting http://www.uboost.com/express
With this system, 1st through 7th grade teachers award points to students with coupons printed from their computers to recognize appropriate behavior such as attendance, homework completion, improved test scores, and class participation. Students can redeem their points online for virtual room decorations and pets; make charitable donations; and participate in monthly contests to win books, games, and DVDs.
"Frequent, consistent and relevant recognition of students' incremental performance gains is critical to maximizing learning gains. Students thrive when they are recognized for improvement," says John Bower, CEO of uBoost. "We hope that our free Express Program will help budget-minded Educators stretch their budgets and motivate students to put forth maximum effort in all subject areas."
uBoost, an online Recognition and Rewards Platform, was founded in Hawaii in 2007 by Company President and CEO, John C Bower, and provides educators an innovative tool to increase student engagement, which drives attendance, motivation, and positive learning outcomes. uBoost reaches students through their relationships with schools, tutoring companies, and online curriculum publishers such as such as Weekly Reader Publishing, Kaplan Tutoring, K12, and TutorVista. uBoost also works with local organizations such as Hawaii Technology Academy and It's All About Kids, reaching more than 100 K-12 campuses state-wide. With over 100,000 students registered from around the world and counting, uBoost has grown to be nationally recognized as the leading recognition and rewards program in the Education industry.
Recognition in the form of points, performance-based honor badges, and a coveted spot on achiever leader-boards encourage students to put forth maximum effort. Students are able to choose rewards that interest them. They can purchase merchandise and gift cards; support their favorite charitable cause; customize their own safe, virtual environment; or participate in contests to win premium rewards such as books, games, and other merchandise. To maintain engagement, uBoost continues to offer new rewards and contests to keep up with students' changing interests and to ensure relevance throughout the school year.
