Vivo Miles has hit school. The scheme has had excellent feedback from staff and pupils and is already making a difference to behaviour and motivation. Look out for a Portsmouth based seminar on the system coming soon.
The system is based upon on-line banking so can be linked to the business and enterprise curriculum. Pupils can earn interest, be taxed (money going to charity) and have to look after their card, user details and pin number. The first Vivo console is up and running in the school also, hope to get some feedback and details about this soon.
Vivo as a compoany? I have to say that so far customer servivce and technical support have both been excellent. As the company is in its early days still, they are quick to respond to feedback.
Was also very pleased to find that Vivo also has a iPhone site!
