Sending cheers to my students

You can send a "cheer" to students, which shows up on their screen when they are on the activity starter page or upon completion of a section of a list based task. This can help to acknowledge and motivate hard-working students.

Open the Classes tab.

Teacher Dashboard with the Classes tab highlighted

Select  Who's online.

Classes tab with Who's Online highlighted by a red box

This will show you a list of students who are online. You are able to either cheer individual students on by clicking on the horn icon beside their names, or you can collectively cheer on all students currently logged in by clicking on Message All Online Students! at the bottom of the page.

Cheers can only be received by students who are online and will only show on the student's screen when they are on the activity starter page or upon completion of a section of a list based task. Students can cheer each other on as well; if you want to stop this during class you can disable cheers during a homework task

Cheers can also be sent to students from the Tasks tab. Sending Cheers to students through a task is a good way to get a cheer to your entire class, without sending cheers to other students in your school.

To send a cheer to the whole class navigate to the Get Started tab.

For students who are browsing, their cheers will not appear as a pop-up but will show up in their sticker collection when they view it.
