For Schools

Taming Student Smartphones

EngageMode tames the smartphone so students stay engaged in class and safe on the roads.  Teachers love the App because they don’t have to watch for smartphones or spend time on discipline.  Students enjoy using the App and winning points, badges, competitions and rewards. Parents love having the data to keep their students’ smartphone use under control.

Boosting Achievement Levels

Improving student achievement is your biggest job. Research shows smartphone distraction in class lowers test scores by at least 5%. Even sitting next to a distracted student affects test scores. EngageMode is your solution to improving student achievement. Read more about it here.

How it works
The Power of Data
EngageMode uses the power of data to help students change habits. Students can see how the smartphone is interrupting them and capturing their time. We show students how changing their smartphone habits can help them get better grades on the same amount of study time.
Getting Parents Involved
Parents receive online reports showing their students’ smartphone screen time, and a driving safety score. Parents are eager to see this data and provide the coaching and accountability that students need. EngageMode gets parents involved so your teachers don’t have to manage smartphones!
Driving Safety First
Safe driving saves lives. EngageMode gives students a driving safety score that looks at both distracted driving and aggressive driving. Speeding, hard braking, and aggressive maneuvering all factor into the score, along with texting or using the smartphone while driving.
Keeping It Positive
Gamification and Fun
Students earn points and badges for the time they stay off the smartphone. Keeping the phone locked for a whole class period earns points – and two classes in a row earns even more. They also earn points based on phone settings that minimize distraction. And even more points for safe driving.
You can run schoolwide challenges and competitions with themes and prizes. Points can add up to badges and levels. You can offer prizes and privileges, or encourage parents to do so.
Getting Buy-In
Students will follow policies that they believe in and buy into. EngageMode includes videos and education on the ways smartphones capture and divide their attention – making them study longer and get lower grades. EngageMode becomes the students’ ally in getting their work done efficiently. You can run schoolwide challenges and competitions with themes and prizes. Points can add up to badges and levels. You can offer prizes and privileges, or encourage parents to do so.
