“Using Digitability has been awesome in my classroom! My students and l love how easy it is to navigate. We are particularly fond of how the students are able to earn money and develop Financial Literacy.”

- Adrienne Brown (PACE Classroom), Southwest Career & Technical Academy Clark County School District (Las Vegas, NV)

Classroom Social Economy in the Informal Assessment

During the Informal Assessment portion of a lesson, teachers use the Classroom Social Economy dollar system to incentivize students to participate by using the phrase “For a participation dollar…” These language cues are based on principles of behavior modification and will be the foundation for teaching a range of behaviors — both those deemed "successful" workplace behaviors and those that can be perceived as "problematic." Through the use of the Digitability Classroom Social Economy, students develop both self-regulation and self-advocacy by earning money for participation early in the program and, later, also "spending" money on behaviors we want to decrease.
