I must say I like it, for all of the years I was teaching 10+... I was more focused on the bad kids, pushing the button, pleading with them to be on task, writing discipline referrals, worried about skippers. THE GOOD KIDS GOT IGNORED AND NO REWARDS. Really the BEST KIDS, JUST SLIPPED BY CAUSE I DIDN'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THEM. With this new Hero system, I get to reward the good kids, the ones that do what they are supposed to do EVERYDAY! And they can see how much I appreciate them for being good, respectful, peer tutors and just all around awesome... PLUS I FIND MYSELF ACTUALLY INTERACTING WITH THESE GOOD KIDS EVEN MORE... WE ARE NOW TALKING ABOUT THEIR LIFE AND DREAMS, FUTURE PLANS, AND COLLEGE...AND I HAVE NOTICED THAT MY PROBLEM STUDENTS ARE TRYING TO STEP UP, because they are not getting my attention anymore!!! THINK ABOUT THAT!... Plus, the students that are following the rules, YOU KNOW, THE ONES WE USED TO IGNORE... are getting rewards from the school. Like special luncheons, free movie passes, and special events. I have started to pay more attention to the everyday "awesome" students who really don't get recognized! I am loving this HeroK12 program! AND FOR ALL OF THE TEACHERS WHO THINK "WHY SHOULD I REWARD THEM FOR DOING WHAT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO DO?"... I SAY BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE DOES!
Need more options for custom points. I would like to give more than 1 or 2 points at a time. There should be an option were a teacher cam make their own custom rewards for their class. The students are also having difficulty recovering their password though their school email (they can only get mail from teachers). There needs to be a way for students to recover passwords without out using the school email system.
