BYOD Upgrade Cards

I recently posted about my Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) classroom policy, which uses four color-coded levels to communicate to students appropriate and inappropriate uses of their personal mobile devices within the context of they day’s learning activities.  After successfully implementing the BYOD level policy, I figured out I could leverage it as a reward for good behavior.

With a little colored card stock and a special hole punch from the craft store, I started awarding students punches for positive reinforcement of good behavior.   As long as you adhere to your BYOD level regularly, students will welcome a little flexibility in how they use their devices when they earn an upgrade.
