Our school has a new rewards system. The students build up stamps which allow them to buy things over the year, such as MP3 players, trips, etc.
I've been thinking that it would be nice to have the equivalent of game unlock codes for ICT. After students gained enough stamps they'd be able to, for example, set their own desktop wall paper. This would allow us to get involved in the scheme, while reinforcing the idea that ICT access is a privilege and not a right.
Does anyone have any other ideas, and ways to implement things so that it doesn't take too much time to administrate?
Other ideas I've though of:
- Email access: possibly allowing early access to external email if the student earned it.
- VLE themes: allowing them to set a custom theme.
Is anyone doing anything similar?
