CritterCoin uses to concept of coins instead of Badges. Why do we do this?
- Our internal research shows students enjoy collecting coins more than badges.
- CritterCoin Coins have an inherent point value which you set. This makes it intuitive to understand that by giving out coins their values add to the students' reward store balances as well as their house score.
- Coins simplify tasks for teachers. They don't need to differentiate between giving out house points, reward points or badges. They simply give out coins to reward students for demonstrating your school's desired behaviors. All points are automatically handled by CritterCoin.
In CritterCoin, anything you might have considered as a badge should be created as a coin.
