Moby Max Update
Making the Most of Moby Math
In addition, Moby has awesome motivational tools which recognize student effort, achievement, and participation. These tools can also help you connect personally with students.
In their opening screen, students can check their up-to-the minute "Progress" under the elephant tab, play "Games", check and send messages in "Messenger" and see their "Vibes" and "Badges". Moby also sends students a "Daily Smile" at the beginning of each login.
Hard work deserves to be rewarded! Each time a student completes a lesson topic, they earn a star. After they earn 10 stars, they are awarded a badge. Students love viewing their badges and reading about the interesting science phenomena each badge depicts.
It's easy to print certificates for students. Simply click on the Badges icon under Cool Stuff and you can select your whole class or individual students to award.
Messages and Vibes
You can also send your whole class (or individuals) Vibes. Vibes are like virtual "stickers" that reward things like "Persistence", "Worked at Home", "Helping Others", "On Task", and "Teamwork". You can even create your own Vibes. That's one of the beautiful things about Moby, it works well in its fully-automatic mode, but can also easily be customized for student (and your) needs.
