Positive Behavior Supports: Using Class Dojo as a Token Economy Point System to Encourage and Maintain Good Behaviors
Garcia, Eliana; Hoang, Dana
Online Submission
The use of positive reinforcement sometimes gets lost in translation because educators forget the importance of acknowledging good behaviors. We instinctively tend to punish and give consequences because we often forget the importance of preventing undesired behaviors from occurring in the first place. More efforts should be spent on maintaining and increasing desired behaviors. Through the use of Class Dojo, we have seen a significant rise in positive student behaviors. This article will address the role of positive reinforcement and the rewards linked with using positive reinforcements in the classroom in order to maintain/increase desired behaviors, thus diminishing undesirable behaviors.
