Kids Boost Immunity works best on Chrome, Firefox and Safari browsers. Please do not use Internet Explorer.

In order for individual students to earn vaccines, they will need access to the the internet through either a desktop computer, or a personal device (such as a smart phone, laptop or tablet).

 

Getting started

 

 

1) Decide what you want to teach

  • Login to Kids Boost Immunity one week before you plan on using the platform.
  • If you wish, you can also look at how Kids Boost Immunity fits with your curriculum by clicking here.
  • Click on "Lessons" on the top menu, choose your grade, and review the materials and decide on which topics you would like to teach.
  • Please note that students do not see the same things as teachers (e.g. they don't see the User Guide, nor can they choose a grade). In addition, teachers do not earn vaccines.

2) Create your team

  • When logged in, go to the “My Teams” on the menu and click on the “Add Team” button.
  • To create a team you will be asked to fill out a form. This just take a few minutes to complete. An important part of this form is the “team registration code” - a secret password or phrase you create that your students will require in order to register.

3) Get your students to register

In order for students to use Kids Boost Immunity, they must be registered to a team. At the start of or prior to the lesson, get your students to register using their personal device or school computer. They will require the secret team registration code you created.

  • Students click on the ‘Register’ button (found on the home page) and select  the ‘Student’ option. 
  • Students enter their first name and last name initial (e.g. “Jennifer N”), a unique password and the team registration code. After everyone in the class has registered, you should see all of their names on your team page.
  • For privacy purposes, student names can only be seen by other students on the same team and their teacher, but NOT by other students on other teams, other teachers, or site visitors.

4) Direct your students to take the introduction quiz

  • Immediately after registering, your students will be taken to the introduction quiz. This quiz will help orient students to how the site works.

5) Direct your students to the lesson(s) of your choice

  • After all your students have completed the introduction quiz, direct your students to the first lesson of your choice.
  • Lessons can be either self-directed by students, or teacher-led. 
  • At the bottom of each lesson, students can take a quiz. There are several different types of quizzes.
    • Trivia Quizzes are used at the beginning of each topic as a an ice breaker to get kids engaged as well as to gather aggregate baseline data to measure knowledge acquisition.
    • Lesson Quizzes are "regular" quizzes, where students must earn at least 80% to earn a vaccine and can be retaken over and over.
    • Final Quizzes can let the students earn even more vaccines if they score higher.

6) Direct your students to take the "Give us your feedback" quiz

  • When you have completed all of the lessons and quizzes, as a last task please ask your students to take the ‘Give us your Feedback’ quiz.
  • This quiz is located at the bottom of the Lessons page. This quiz will help us assess student learning and improve Kids Boost Immunity for your class next year. Each student will earn an additional vaccine for completing this quiz.

Thank you for acting locally to help immunize globally.

You are helping people around the globe get immunity to diseases like polio, tetanus and measles that can be prevented or even eliminated through vaccination! Thank you for all the great work!
