Britt Smith's curator insight, December 7, 2013 6:51 AM

Awesome idea to motivate students to reach reading goals and continue to engage them in meaningful learning activities as part of the reward.  Essential for schools to continue to expose students to modern or new technologies while they are "in school."  Students who regress in terms of technology exposure while at school vs. home lose confidence in the credibility of technology instruction when the tools are antiquated.
