Classroom Activity: Celebrating Effort and Achievement
Once students have completed a few Quests, visit their Student Dashboards. At the beginning, they won't have many points (stars), diamonds, or badges. That's okay. Identify students who have earned a badge or two and praise them for their effort and achievement. Recognizing students early in the process encourages them and motivates them to work even harder. As students complete more and more Quests, you will see many more successes on the Achievement Board. Take time to recognize those successes. Publicly praise a student for getting a perfect score (or gold crown). The Achievement Board is a visual celebration of their hard work. Let your students know that you are aware of their successes.
Did you know?
The scoring advantage behind badges was inspired by bowling. The co-founders grew up in the same city and they would frequent the local bowling alley. They knew how scoring worked in bowling. A bowler who knocks down all 10 pins with a single bowling ball gets a strike. If a bowler bowls three strikes in a row, he or she earns a "turkey" (not an actual bird or a badge). After bowling three strikes in a row, the next frame is worth maximum points. The co-founders used the spirit of this point system and applied it to Quindew's scoring system. If a student answers three questions in a row, he or she earns a fireball badge because he or she is on "fire." The student enters into a streak. Every correct answer during a streak earns the student extra points and a different badge. A student who earns a perfect score gets the maximum 3,000 points and a coveted golden crown.
