On SecretBuilders, Virtual Goods Spell Real Rewards for Students
The SecretBuilders Virtual Rewards program provides teachers with the ability to reward students for good behavior via virtual goods.
San Mateo, CA, September 2010 – SecretBuilders, an educational game with an emphasis on creativity and historical adventure for children 6 to 14 years old, announces the launch of the Virtual Rewards program for teachers. The Virtual Rewards program allows teachers to reward their students with cool virtual goods based on how well they perform on certain activities.
SecretBuilders Virtual Rewards makes it convenient for teachers to encourage and reward their students for good performance and behavior. By signing up for a Teacher Console account with SecretBuilders, teachers will have access to their account, allowing them to enroll their students, set up a rewards system and monitor student progress.
"The Virtual Rewards program allows teachers to incentivize their students for good performance," said Umair Khan, CEO of SecretBuilders. "Instead of traditional stickers and stars, teachers can give much sought after virtual pets or cool virtual furniture. It costs teachers and schools nothing, and yet is more motivating for students."
SecretBuilders, with nearly 2 million users, is used in thousands of schools in all 50 states and 180 countries around the world. A partial list of schools using SecretBuilders in their classroom includes:
Weibel Elementary School, CA; Berkeley Preparatory School, FL; Central Middle School, GA; Jefferson Elementary School, KS; Arlington School, MA; Pontiac Academy of Excellence, MI; Joseph J. Catena Elementary, NJ; Hartford Central School, NY; Bryan Middle School, OH; New Bloomfield Elementary, PA; Oakmont Elementary School, TN, Holy Name Catholic School, TX; Wright Middle School, VA; Serene Lake Elementary, WA
SecretBuilders is an educational game with an emphasis on creativity and historical adventure for children 6 to 14 years old.
