“LiveSchool” was featured on NewsWatch as part of its monthly AppWatch, which takes a look at the latest and coolest applications on the market for iOS, Android, and Windows. Joe Toohey, the host of AppWatch and technology expert, conducted the app review and shared with viewers how this application allows teachers to reward students with good behavior.
Positive re-enforcement is more powerful than some realize, especially in the classroom. And the good people at LiveSchool have taken note and developed an app geared towards rewarding students for good behavior. Now, a lot of teachers find that a major challenge in the classroom is student behavior and motivation. With LiveSchool, teachers award points to students for hard work, behavior, and learning.
Educators can reward students in real time through their phone, tablets, PC, or even a smart board. Teachers can then print out a PayCheck which shows students how many points they earned that week, with comments the teacher made, as well as graphs and charts to map improvements. Students can take those charts home to show parents their progress. But even better, students can spend those points on rewards like pizza, dance parties, or even field trips. Some schools have set up stores where they can redeem items using their points.
This system is already set up in over 150 schools in 32 states and is changing the once dreaded “behavior modification model”. LiveSchool is an HTML5 app so it can be used on any device with a browser. It's free for up to 5 teachers and if users decide to go school-wide, subscriptions are as low as $79 per teacher per year.
