What is FrogAcademy?

Available to: Frog Admin, Teachers, Students and Parents
The FrogAcademy is a one-stop dashboard that links to all your Frog and 1BestariNet related services in one page. As a parent, you will find tools to help your child learn more effectively allowing them to maximize their full academic potential.
In here you can view your child’s Avatar, a great incentive to help your child learn. FrogCredits are needed to make avatars more interesting and these can earned by your child participating in activities or by purchasing items in the FrogStore.
All your purchased items can be seen at a glance in the ‘My Library’ section. Managing your Yes account is made simple with the useful account summary. You can also look up your child’s teacher’s email addresses with the useful My School Address Book feature.
To access the FrogAcademy, click the Quick Launch in the Frog Bar.

Avatars
Each user of the Frog VLE has their own unique avatar. An avatar is a cartoon like figure that is a representation of you that others can see online. Initially this figure is just a simple outline and not very interesting. Additional features (body styles, accessories etc.) can be added, however, these must be earned by participating in various educational activities found in the Revision section. This has proven to be a great incentive for children to use educational software.
Your Avatar
As a parent, you have your own avatar. To manage your avatar, click on Edit Avatar.

 wifat013
To add a new feature or edit and existing feature of your avatar, select a category to view a list of items for that category group. You will notice that some of the items are free and you can add these without using up any of your FrogCredits. You will need to have the appropriate FrogCredits in the bank before adding items with a credit value against them.
Note: Adding items with a credit value will not use your FrogCredits immediately. You can experiment by adding any items and add them your basket. Your FrogCredits will only be spent when you visit the shopping cart to buy the items.
How do I get more FrogCredits?
Your child can earn extra FrogCredits by completing assignments in the Revision section. As a parent you can buy more FrogCredits for your child, perhaps as a reward if you think your child has done particularly well or perhaps a gift for their birthday. FrogCredits can be purchased from the Account section (see below) or from the FrogStore.

This area allows you to view and manage your Yes account. You can also buy additional frog FrogCredits for you or your child here.
