Web-based platform that uses a gamification system to promote positive behaviors and actions

Overview

Youtopia provides a web-based platform that promotespositive behaviors and actions through an online point and badge system ofincentives.

Youtopia’s K-8 tools support Positive Behavior InterventionSystems (PBIS) by rewarding positive student behavior with points and badges,rather than the traditional slips of paper or other token prizes. The onlinesystem allows parents to view their student’s progress on PBIS goals andactivities.  In addition to PBIS, schoolscan encourage and track service learning activities. Teachers andadministrators decide the metrics they want to use.  Youtopia supplies prebuilt templates that canbe customized to support individual or school goals. Some teachers also useYoutopia to track attendance and homework.

Youtopia’s high school version works well in managingservice learning and volunteer programs. Anyone who has ever had to track service learning or community servicehours will appreciate the online tracking tools. No more collecting handwrittenslips of paper and translating all of that information into a spreadsheet.Every activity uploaded by a student must be confirmed by a designated managerto ensure more accurate reporting. Administrators and teachers can see at aglance where each student is in terms of making progress on fulfilling servicelearning requirements. Tools are also included for managing school or communityevents.

Students can share their accomplishments through Youtopia’sintegrated social media system. Students can post or tweet their recent badgesor activities in forums of their choice. 

Youtopia also provides similar tools to universities, Greekorganizations, and nonprofit organizations to organize, track and encouragevolunteer service, fundraising and recruitment, as well as to manage volunteersand administer educational programs.
