CritterCoin is the first PBIS solution to leverage Houses and NFTs

App of the Week

CritterCoin is the first positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) solution to leverage Houses and NFTs. It is available free forever to students and teachers.

With CritterCoin, schools sort students into Houses, then teachers create custom-branded 3D coins to reward students for positive behaviors. Coins can reward effort, achievement, attendance, and more.

Every coin a student earns increases their balance in the CritterCoin Reward Store and contributes to their House score. Students in the top-scoring house each week automatically earn collectible digital Critters which they can convert to NFTs on the Avalanche blockchain.

Accessible on web and mobile devices, CritterCoin offers ClassLink integration, providing easy rostering for schools and allowing students to access their accounts without logins or emails.

Launched in 2022 by powerhouse K–20 technology innovator RedCritter, holder of 24 EdTech patents, CritterCoin is already being used by thousands of students around the world.

As schools and districts around the world launch PBIS initiatives, CritterCoin is there to help teachers bring those concepts to life in the classroom in a way that’s fun and free.



CritterCoin is available on the web or through Android and Apple apps.
