Setting Boundaries for Self-Regulation
Teachers and families can coordinate the use of Setting Boundaries for students to support self-regulation. During the Independent Practice portion of the lesson plan, students log into their personal online Digitability accounts to complete lessons independently. As Digitability is gamified with students earning badges, they may want to continue on to lessons not yet facilitated by the teacher. The teacher sets a boundary by identifying which lesson (or badge) students will need to stop at, and a corresponding consequence (reward vs. a fine) is determined and shared ahead of time. For example, a teacher may tell students that for earning their badge during independent practice they will earn Participation Dollars. However, for unlocking badges that were not assigned, students will be fined Participation Dollars. This reinforces the workplace ready behavior of adhering to boundaries and following instructions carefully.
