How FEV Tutor Drives Self-Advocacy through Micro-Badging

Posted by Caitlin Powers on Dec 19, 2018 4:22:07 PM

To encourage our students to take an active role in their learning process and to help make learning fun, FEV Tutor introduced “My Journey” to our Online Tutoring portal this fall. Students are rewarded with points for positive behaviors, such as taking ownership of their learning, mastering new concepts, participation, and more. As students accumulate points, they earn Micro-Badges that unlock new levels on their game-board to compete with their classmates and earn privileges to customize their avatar and tutoring experience. In this post, we will examine how FEV's My Journey helps students to become self-advocates.
