It’s simple: in a coin-based economy model, students work hard in order to play hard, or to enhance their experiences in the virtual learning environment. This model of “earning your reward” has practical applications in everyday life, as well.
Stride Academy operates on a coin-based economy system. Students complete academic tasks – such as answering questions correctly or watching an instructional video from start to finish – in order to earn coins. Coins can be spent on game time in the game of their choice. Future upgrades to Stride Academy will allow students to spend their coins on selecting a different avatar, and on other ways to enrich their virtual experience.
