Positive Reinforcement & Immediate Feedback

Teachers use the Digitability Social Economy to provide Immediate Feedback and Positive Reinforcement of workplace ready behavior. Immediately following a behavior, teachers consistently label the behavior when awarding dollars. For example, “Nice job earning a participation dollar.”

Positive Reinforcement & Immediate Feedback is streamlined throughout the entire Digitability program. As a recurring evidence-based practice embedded in every Digitability lesson plan, it drastically increases students' intrinsic motivation and also strengthens students' ability to attend to a task.

In tandem with the Digitability Social Economy, Positive Reinforcement & Immediate Feedback provide teachers with constant opportunities to award Digitability dollars, strengthening positive workplace behavior and teaching the basics of financial literacy. As students earn and spend money in the Digitability Classroom Social Economy, they are learning critical budgeting skills, as well.
