From now until the end of February 2022, Boom Learning is inviting teachers to try Boom Cards for free. New customers get two months of access to Essentials memberships. This will allow you to use Boom Cards with 17 classrooms and 150 students, whether you’re teaching remotely or in the classroom. It’s our way of responding to the current crisis caused by staffing shortages and COVID outbreaks. Once you set up an account, you’ll have the ability to assign free or purchased Boom Cards, and you’ll be able to see detailed reports on your students’ performance.
At the same time, we’re giving schools the opportunity to set up free accounts, too. Admins can email firstname.lastname@example.org to get their staff members set up with 60 days of free access. You can see more details about the school promotion here. Sign up before the end of February to take advantage of this offer.
Boom Learning accounts have always been free for parents. Creating a single classroom for 5 students or less is easy and free!

Zayats M.V. Implementation of a Token Economy in the Process of Skills Formation in Distance Learning Classes with a Child with ASD. >Autizm i narusheniya razvitiya = Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2021. Vol. 19, no. 2 (71), pp. 59—68. DOI: https://doi.org/10.17759/autdd.2021190207 (In Russ.). English translation of the conclusion: “This study has shown that behavioral intervention procedures can be effectively applied in the context of a distance-learning format. When introducing a token reward system in the learning process, the subject learned how to independently compare the same stimuli, distinguish between animals, and also answer ‘yes’ / ‘no’ under conditions of intraverbalization, which is the basis to acquire more complex and necessary functional skills, such as sorting objects, distinguishing objects by function, characteristics and categories, as well as expanding the repertoire of requests. Boom Cards were used to provide the intervention.”
