Class Badges

Class Badges is a website that was built for teachers to track their students progress.  On Class Badges teachers create goals for their students and then reward them with badges when they achieve those goals.  The badges are collected in the student's profile for all to see.  Examples of goals could include completion of a large assignment, class attendance, perfect homework, participation and more.  Recently, Class Badges has included the option for teachers to create their own badges for teachers.  In our schools we are currently using a behavior modification system called PBIS where students get rewarded for being respectful.  It has really taken hold and I can see Class Badges having the same impact.  Check out the video below to learn more about the Class Badges site.H/T to Richard Byrne
