    Hero is a great time saver for any busy school administrator. Students are able to use technology to earn positive points and also track and manage their own discipline. It is user-friendly and adaptable to the specific needs of the school. I love writing my own tracking codes and setting the action thresholds.

    Synergy Education Platform

    Very slow, you literally have to click save for every transaction or it is lost. It should have an autosave feature.It should have automatic commands:E for excusedor a one-click solution for excusing student work

    Pros

    Hero, by Schoolmint

    • Allows ALL students to earn points at the push of a button.
    • Connects with infinite Campus so student schedules and info are always accurate on the Hero site.
    • Allows teachers to create their own groups for after school programs or even small groups in their classrooms.

    Cons

    Hero, by Schoolmint

    • Hero had the Hero Homeroom where teachers could collaborate and receive rewards but that was discontinued. I think that a similar reward system for those who are supposed to be inputting information would be helpful, where consistency for the required input is rewarded. For example: teachers were to be recording points for all their students every period every day - if they received points for completing their input & could then choose to spend those points on rewards that would help encourage participation to make it more successful overall.
    • Too hands-off in making sure that implementation is as successful as possible.
    • Too techie for non-tech savvy people.

    Synergy Education Platform

    • Less downtime during the day.
    • Not logging out after a certain time of inactivity.
    • Online user-manuals for each school district.

    Someone is always available. I like being able to call, chat, or email as needed. There are also a lot of tutorials and webinars provided. Hero does a good job of providing tools for onboarding new users and customers as well. It is easy to find whatever information you are looking for.

    Alternatives Considered

    Hero, by Schoolmint

    We used a tardy tracking system a couple years ago but it wasn't as efficient as Hero. It did not keep track of any positive behaviors. I don't remember the name of the system but I know it only focused on the negative behaviors and giving out consequences for those negative behaviors.

    Synergy is great at keeping all student data in one place.It is very inefficient for teachers entering grades.

    Return on Investment

    Hero, by Schoolmint

    • Definitely worth the money. The kids are happy, they're using the program as often as they can, and they appreciate the opportunity to be rewarded for their good behavior.
    • We've been able to sustain a store, and that's super awesome. I know we wouldn't be able to without the help of Hero and the ways in which we keep the hype.
    • I think I need more help with teacher adoption. We have a lot of initiatives at our school, so we're trying to take on a little more than we can chew at this point. We're getting there though!
