Go Mobile

Use your phone to quickly award points wherever you are in the classroom.

For Apple devices, download our iOS app.

For Android devices, add LiveSchool as a bookmark to your homescreen for quickest access.

LiveSchool works on mobile devices just like it does on desktops, and you'll find many of the tools you use everyday in the same place. To highlight the similarities between the mobile and desktop version of LiveSchool, the rest of this article features images of LiveSchool on mobile devices 😊.

Add Points to Your Routines

The key to LiveSchool is consistency – and adding points to your routines is an easy way to award points regularly.

Select All

Use the Select All feature to award points to the majority of your class – an easy way to recognize all of your students' positive behavior, quickly.

Just tap Select All, un-select any students not following expectations during routines, and award your point!

Awarding points to the majority can be a great tool to keep students engaged during routines – and using Select All makes it as fast as selecting one student.

Start off Class with Some Points!

Whether expectations are for students to line up outside of the door (add another point if they're meeting hallway voice-level expectations), sit at their desk and start the bell ringer, or get started on an assignment from the day before, there are a lot of opportunities to award points during your starting procedures.

Awarding points at the start of class can be a great way to keep students engaged from the beginning, and get them thinking about  other ways to earn points for their positive behavior.

Add Points During Work Sessions

During individual work sessions, you could award the majority for staying on task, and if a student asks a question individually maybe you award them a point for "Asking for Help" or "Perseverance."

During group work sessions you can award points for behaviors like critical thinking, collaboration, or teamwork as you check in on groups.

You can also use this time to record back-dated points you jotted down on a sticky note (more on this below).

Award Points During End of Class Transitions

Smooth classroom transitions can be key to students starting class focused. Using points to reinforce your expectations for transitions is a great way to encourage students to behave appropriately in the hallways.

Get Students Involved

Getting students involved can be a fun way to give students some ownership in the point giving process.

Students at the Smartboard

Ask students to award themselves a specific point on the smartboard, and they just might smile all the way back to their seat.

If you don't have a smartboard, you could ask students to use the computer projecting to the class, or even your phone to award themselves the point.

Either way, students love the pride and recognition they feel when they award themselves a point.

Student Helper

Ask a student to use the class iPad (or the computer projecting to the class) to award points as you say them out loud. You could tie this to a point goal reward in your classroom, for example, "any students who earn more than 40 points this week get to be the LiveSchool student helper next week!"

Using either of the approaches above frees your hands while you're teaching and makes it easier to award points (plus, you say the specific point out loud, which is a best practice in positive feedback). You can always review the points the student awarded with Timeline too.

Analog is A-Okay

Jot points down for later!

Every second counts in the classroom, and sometimes teachers have too much going on to record a point.

Use a sticky note, the whiteboard, or your clipboard to jot points down and record them later if this method works better for you.

When you go to record the points, on the rubric screen, click the three dots and select Time. Choose the closest time to when the behavior occurred, and that point will show up on Timeline and in reports like it was recorded at the time that you set.

Go Mobile

Use your phone to quickly award points wherever you are in the classroom.

For Apple devices, download our iOS app.

For Android devices, add LiveSchool as a bookmark to your homescreen for quickest access.

LiveSchool works on mobile devices just like it does on desktops, and you'll find many of the tools you use everyday in the same place. To highlight the similarities between the mobile and desktop version of LiveSchool, the rest of this article features images of LiveSchool on mobile devices 😊.

If you're displaying LiveSchool to the class, check out our Use your Phone as a LiveSchool Remote Control article.

Add Points to Your Routines

The key to LiveSchool is consistency – and adding points to your routines is an easy way to award points regularly.

Select All

Use the Select All feature to award points to the majority of your class – an easy way to recognize all of your students' positive behavior, quickly.

Just tap Select All, un-select any students not following expectations during routines, and award your point!

Awarding points to the majority can be a great tool to keep students engaged during routines – and using Select All makes it as fast as selecting one student.

Start off Class with Some Points!

Whether expectations are for students to line up outside of the door (add another point if they're meeting hallway voice-level expectations), sit at their desk and start the bell ringer, or get started on an assignment from the day before, there are a lot of opportunities to award points during your starting procedures.

Awarding points at the start of class can be a great way to keep students engaged from the beginning, and get them thinking about  other ways to earn points for their positive behavior.

Add Points During Work Sessions

During individual work sessions, you could award the majority for staying on task, and if a student asks a question individually maybe you award them a point for "Asking for Help" or "Perseverance."

During group work sessions you can award points for behaviors like critical thinking, collaboration, or teamwork as you check in on groups.

You can also use this time to record back-dated points you jotted down on a sticky note (more on this below).

Award Points During End of Class Transitions

Smooth classroom transitions can be key to students starting class focused. Using points to reinforce your expectations for transitions is a great way to encourage students to behave appropriately in the hallways.

Get Students Involved

Getting students involved can be a fun way to give students some ownership in the point giving process.

Students at the Smartboard

Ask students to award themselves a specific point on the smartboard, and they just might smile all the way back to their seat.

If you don't have a smartboard, you could ask students to use the computer projecting to the class, or even your phone to award themselves the point.

Either way, students love the pride and recognition they feel when they award themselves a point.

Student Helper

Ask a student to use the class iPad (or the computer projecting to the class) to award points as you say them out loud. You could tie this to a point goal reward in your classroom, for example, "any students who earn more than 40 points this week get to be the LiveSchool student helper next week!"

Using either of the approaches above frees your hands while you're teaching and makes it easier to award points (plus, you say the specific point out loud, which is a best practice in positive feedback). You can always review the points the student awarded with Timeline too.

Analog is A-Okay

Jot points down for later!

Every second counts in the classroom, and sometimes teachers have too much going on to record a point.

Use a sticky note, the whiteboard, or your clipboard to jot points down and record them later if this method works better for you.

When you go to record the points, on the rubric screen, click the three dots and select Time. Choose the closest time to when the behavior occurred, and that point will show up on Timeline and in reports like it was recorded at the time that you set.
