LiveSchool – Engage Your Students | NewsWatch Review

AppWatch Review

Positive reinforcement is more powerful than some realize, especially in the classroom. Think back to your favorite teachers throughout your education. Chances are they were the ones who rooted for you and gave you the confidence to become the person you are today. The good people at LiveSchool have taken note and developed an app geared towards rewarding students for good behavior.

Teaching is a difficult and sometimes unforgiving job. 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. They can do it 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. 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 you decide to go school-wide, subscriptions are as low as $79 per teacher per year.

  1. Can I simply say what a relief to find somebody who actually understands
    what they are discussing on the web. You actually understand how to
    bring an issue to light and make it important. More and
    more people have to check this out and understand this side of your
    story. I can’t believe you aren’t more popular given that you surely have the gift.

  2. I’ve been browsing online a lot more than 4 hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough in my opinion.
    In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content while you did, the web
    will probably be far more useful than previously.

  3. This is the perfect website for anybody who would like to find out about this topic.
    You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually will
    need toHaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject that has been written about for decades.
    Excellent stuff, just great!

  4. Exceptional post however I was wanting to
    know if you could write a litte more on this subject? I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little
    bit further. Many thanks!

  5. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have
    some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into
    anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward
    to your new updates.
