Description

Ready to build an amazing classroom economy? A classroom economy can be a multi-layered learning experience that is unique to each year’s class. This application has the flexibility and simplicity to design an economy that fits the culture of your classroom from year to year. It organically emphasizes the concepts of a real world economy. It gives the teacher an opportunity to demonstrate tangible cause and effect. It will lead to rich classroom meetings and discussions and fits beautifully with Project Based Learning. Teachers can encourage any positive behavior they would like to see in their classroom community such as: “Showing up to class on time” and “Raising their hand.” Students can be “paid” for classroom jobs and responsibilities. The creators of Classroom Hero are aware that not all classroom communities have the same values Students and their teacher can decide which behaviors and jobs deserve greater points than others and why. Teachers can create Class Goal(s) to encourage classmates to work together to achieve a common objective. With a great emphasis being placed on collaboration in today’s Common Core Standards, no classroom economy would be complete without the recognition of community goals. Again, the classroom has the flexibility to create their own objectives with Classroom Hero. Teachers can create an unique marketplace with their students’ help. The whole class, with the teacher facilitating, can design the marketplace to offer items or services that have meaning and are motivating for them. Teachers have access to data for the entire class or individual students. Teachers can view how many points students have earned, the rewards they have purchased, and the achievements they have completed. This data is an excellent starting point with students when meeting to discuss behavior and to use in conferences. Students can set goals and see them achieved. The class as a whole can also set goals and check progress. Classroom Hero helps teachers build a modern and realistic classroom economy inspiring a depth of learning that regular simulated economies do not provide while saving time and valuing student input. The creators of Classroom Hero are interested in creating an environment that values synergy, we encourage feedback from teachers and students too, so the product can continue to serve the education community. We live in a time where the research about learning and the brain is rapidly changing, Classroom Hero will change right along with the advancement of Best Practices.
