A successful PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) implementation requires two main elements: engaged students who “buy in,” and actionable data that educators can use to support Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions. For district and school administrators, harnessing the power of games within their PBIS framework promises both.
In this edWebinar, learn how educators can create sustainable behavior change by incorporating gaming principles into their approach to PBIS. Walk through the ability of student-driven implementations to provide high-fidelity data that educators can use to personalize Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions and measure the overall effectiveness of their PBIS implementation.
After this recorded edWebinar, you’ll understand the essential role of intrinsic motivation in driving behavior change, the varying degrees to which intrinsic motivation is represented in “gamified” PBIS frameworks, and the power of a team-based approach within the context of PBIS. This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to middle school and junior high school and district leaders.
