Introducing Vivo A Teacher Guide
What is Vivo? • Vivo is an online rewards system • Teachers award pupils Vivos (electronic points) for good work, effort etc. • Students save and spend their Vivos on the rewards they want from an online catalogue • Every student gets a personalised Vivo card, very much like a bank card • Students can check their Vivo balance by logging on to their account through the vivojunior.com website (for primary schools) or vivoedge.com website (for all others)
