Immediate Feedback & Positive Reinforcement

During the Informal Assessment section and throughout the lesson plan, teachers can increase their use of the Digitability Social Economy to provide Immediate Feedback and Positive Reinforcement of behavior. They consistently describe the behavior (participation) when awarding dollars. “Nice job earning a participation dollar.”

This helps strengthen the foundation for teacher workplace behavior, self-advocacy and self-regulation. These phrases will change to include a variety of other behaviors such as being on-task, sharing, following directions, interrupting, off-topic and more.

Connecting Positive Reinforcement to The Digitability Lesson Plan

In the classroom, educators use Digitability lesson plans to provide scripted positive reinforcement. These phrases are important as they help the teacher stay consistent, helping the student internalize the behavior they are being rewarded for each time.

Each Digitability Lesson Plan is Differentiated With Adapted Resources

Individuals who participate in the Digitability program run the gamut; therefore, to create an inclusive environment, all of our resources are extensively differentiated to support a wide range of learning and behavior profiles, from adolescence into adulthood.
