Leverage reusable workflows (Quests) to improve positive behaviors
By Ashley Irwin
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a widely adopted framework in schools that aims to improve student behavior and promote a positive school culture. While PBIS is effective in reducing problem behavior, it requires significant effort from teachers and administrators. CritterCoin is a platform that simplifies PBIS implementation by allowing school administrators to create workflows that address behavioral issues and provide positive incentives for students using reusable, visually programmable nodes called CritterCoin Quests.
In this article, we will discuss the benefits of CritterCoin Quests for PBIS in schools.
Customizable and reusable workflows: CritterCoin Quests are customizable and reusable workflows that can be tailored to the unique challenges and needs of individual schools. Administrators can create Quests for specific behavioral issues or positive incentives, and reuse them for future instances of similar issues. This saves time and effort, allowing administrators to focus on other areas of school management.
Easy and quick issuance Teachers can issue CritterCoin Quests to students that could benefit from them in seconds. This provides immediate feedback and recognition for positive behavior, leading to increased motivation and engagement in PBIS activities.
Streamlined communication CritterCoin Quests streamline communication between teachers, parents, and administrators. Each Quest can include specific instructions and requirements, such as teacher or parent sign-off, which ensures everyone is kept in the loop and there is a clear chain of communication and accountability.
Digital rewards CritterCoin Quests allow administrators to issue digital coins as rewards for positive behavior. These coins can be used by students to purchase items in a virtual store or redeemed for real-world rewards. The digital nature of these rewards makes them easy to manage and track, and the immediate feedback and recognition can lead to sustained positive behavior changes.
Promotes a positive school culture CritterCoin Quests incentivize positive behavior, leading to a more positive school culture. The House points and other rewards can also promote teamwork and school spirit, leading to increased engagement and motivation among students.
In conclusion, CritterCoin Quests are a valuable tool for schools looking to implement PBIS in a more effective and efficient manner. They provide customizable and reusable workflows, easy and quick issuance, streamlined communication, digital rewards, and promote a positive school culture. By using CritterCoin Quests, schools can create a more positive and productive learning environment for their students.
