Here are some ways that CritterCoin can contribute to these goals:
- Encourages positive behavior: By rewarding students for exhibiting positive behaviors, such as following rules, being respectful, or helping others, CritterCoin reinforces the behaviors of which schools want to see more.
- Provides immediate feedback: When students earn digital coins, they receive immediate feedback for their actions. This helps students understand the impact of their behavior and encourages them to continue engaging in positive behaviors.
- Automates parental engagement: By providing an automated ways for parents to participate in school rewards for home activities, CritterCoin gives parents a new behavioral tool and keeps them engaged.
- Fosters a growth mindset: By rewarding students for their effort and improvement, CritterCoin can help students develop a growth mindset. Students learn that their behaviors and attitudes can have a positive impact on their lives, and they begin to focus on their own growth and development.
- Encourages goal setting: CritterCoin provides students with a tangible way to measure their progress. By setting goals for earning a certain number of coins, reward points or house competitions etc, students can work towards achieving specific rewards, which helps build motivation and focus.
- Supports PBIS: By recognizing positive behavior, CritterCoin supports PBIS initiatives in schools.
