uBoost motivation tools enhance engagement, creating deeper learning. Time on task increases and students are more likely to complete your program, improving retention and renewal rates.
Achieving the goal of making the individual classroom a place that naturally motivates students to learn is much easier if students and teachers function in a school culture where academic success and motivation to learn is expected, respected and rewarded. - Student Motivation, School Culture and Academic Achievement, Ron Renchler
Enhance effectiveness with a student motivation program. uBoost designs custom programs to meet your specific goals and budget requirements. Students earn redeemable points, avatar upgrades, leaderboard standings and achievement badges, as they work towards completion.
Activities critical for success are recognized by badge and point awards. Students will "level up" and gain access to exclusive features by completing tasks you define as important. Target behaviors include consecutive day logins, time on task, blogging, participation and assignment completion. Leverage proven uBoost engagement strategies such as leaderboards, avatar upgrades, and charitable giving to show evidence of students’ overall progress and status.
Educators agree that parents play a critical role in student success. Daily parent email, text, or voice message keeps them informed of their child’s performance. uBoost also makes it easy for parents to share their child’s success on Facebook.
Automated recognition allows instructors to focus on teaching and learning. By automating positive reinforcement, the uBoost motivational tools quickly become indispensable. Teachers become ardent supporters of your program because of reduced workload.
