Hero is student behavior management software for K-12 schools and districts, from Schoolmint. Hero's goal is to enable consistent redirection of negative behavior, reinforcement of positive behavior and communication between educators, students, parents, and administrators across classrooms school and district-wide. Features include positive behavior tracking tools, referral and tardy management, school event management, behavior analytics data, etc.
Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why
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.
I would highly recommend this as long as you are able to get 90% or more buy-in. However, if there is not a MAJORITY buy-in I don't feel it will be successful. My colleagues and I found that classroom management was much improved in the classrooms of us who were sold on using it and used it with fidelity, adding extra intensives because of infidelity in other classrooms. It became obvious to the administration that the lack of buy-in was destroying the program outcome.
Hero is well suited for charter school systems with smaller classes. It is less appropriate for large public schools where the app freezes might make tracking behaviors overwhelming.
Hero is used school wide as a part of the PBIS programming. It allows us to track behaviors, tardies, detentions, and teacher comments all in one place. There is an option for printing passes for students with a separate machine that plugs into phones and computers and makes it all even more convenient. Positive points can be coded for different purposes including special codes for school wide initiatives.
I think it is appropriate in all scenarios, as long as there is full staff to help with support and implementation. When there is an imbalance of implementation, it renders the program less powerful. The entire staff needs to be speaking the same language so that the students see a united front. The staff needs to keep up the gusto and excitement all year, not just at the beginning so that things do not become too mundane. Therefore, pre-planning the year may be necessary, where events can be pre-thought and tasks pre-assigned. This keeps things exciting for the staff as well as for the students.
If you can afford it, Hero is a fantastic behavior management system for schools.
It can be used in a variety of settings, no reason for it not to be considered appropriate.
The Hero system is a great program to use school-wide especially in large schools like mine with over 1400 students.
Definitely would recommend Hero to any schools that do not have a PBIS system set up or that are looking to revamp their current program because Hero has taken us farther than our previous PBIS system.
One particular scenario were Hero was well suited is targeting specific behaviors, for example, making sure the students wear their identification cards every day. If they do, they will get points. Not only is wearing the ID helpful, it also lets us identify anyone who does not belong on campus.
Hero does actively reward the positive behaviors in students. It also promotes more positive behaviors in students who have had some challenges before. In this technology heavy world, the students need more direct online access. This will allow them to see their progress, see the rewards they want and work at achieving them. Even if they behave just for the prize, eventually they will see how productive positive behavior can really be.
Hero is a fantastic tool for teachers to manage bad behavior and support good behaviors from students. Tardies are usually a huge problem for teachers of any level. With Hero, they can track tardies electronically. Teachers can also enter points for classroom disruptions easily. This allows for the learning atmosphere not to be interrupted to a large degree.
HERO is well suited for students because it provides extrinsic motivation. It also helps adults because Homeroom HERO offers prizes as well.
- To help students that need extra encouragement, and improve the attendance rates at school, we have seen great improvements and I would highly recommend HERO to all educators; it takes time and buy in but it will work. The key is to get more teachers to buy into the program.
I work at a public high school that had a big tardy problem. Some said this would not work at our age group but we jumped in with both feet and have seen amazing and undeniable results that anyone could see who was on campus before implementation. This is good for organizations that want to acknowledge the ones who are doing what they are supposed to do while still taking care of the problems. Could possibly even be used for a business to enable managers to promote desirable behaviors such as early to work, good customer service, specific target behaviors ex "always ask if they want their receipt" etc.
Hero is appropriate when used for attendance and extra help from students. It is less appropriate for the discipline.
It rewards students that are doing the right thing just because.
Hero is well suited for school environments of all kinds, but particularly for those where tardiness and off task behaviors continue to negatively impact instruction.
The responsibility of tracking tardies is taken off of the teacher.
It is well suited for rewarding all students on task and following school-wide and classroom rules and procedures.
Hero is great for classroom use with students of all ages and skill levels.
It is great for schools of all grade levels.
I think the program has great potential. I think students would be even more involved if they were able to have a more interactive engagement with Hero directly. Most students don't know how many points they have, unless teachers provide it to them. If there was a way to provide students with instant points checking, tardies, or incentives, I think they would be more inclined to show interest in the program.
Hero is perfect for the classroom or school that may have some behavioral issues. It helps keep students and teachers accountable for what is going on.
Hero is great for keeping records of student behavior and attendance.
