Gonoodle is a community of people who love to share things they're proud of or have found useful. Whether it's a picture of your recent vacation, a question you found on StackExchange, or a product you found on Amazon, Gonoodle is the place to be. With Gonoodle, you create a profile that is your own personal reflection on what you like and what you know. Then you share your content with others.

Use

Trusted by teachers and used in 90% of US public (and 83% of all US public and private) elementary schools, GoNoodle videos are designed to fuel joy, health, and self-discovery in kids and the adults they love.

Use GoNoodle to transition from one activity to the next; for instance, when kids come in from recess, choose an activity that might help them get ready to focus again. Or, get them moving during an afternoon lull or before a test to get the blood pumping. You can also give students opportunities to lead the activities while you do a short administrative task, like take attendance or check entrance slips. (Source: www.commonsense.org)

GoNoodle is a series of web-based videos, games, and activities focused on introducing short bursts of physical exercise into the classroom. For children of all ages who need to burn up energy to concentrate on learning, this is a simple solution. The site is meant to be used for physical activity in five- to 10-minute bursts, particularly during transition periods. Teachers create a classroom mascot, and students level it up by completing activity challenges. (Don't worry: When one mascot is maxed out, you can move on to another.) This mechanism is fun but not the main incentive behind GoNoodle. (Source: www.commonsense.org)

www.commonsense.org)What really stands out is the sheer variety of activities students can participate in. From dancing to yoga to Wii Sports-type running games, there's a ton to do. There are also videos that incorporate academic subjects with movement, such as competition games identifying plural nouns, or games where students use their whole body to form letters. And there's a channel entirely in Spanish. Teachers can explore the featured videos on the main page or browse videos by category, such as movement type or academic subject. Or they can choose a particular channel, each of which has a unique look and approach to encouraging movement. In addition, there are curricular resources that offer ideas for how to incorporate GoNoodle into your classroom, printables to enhance a lesson, and customizable quiz questions. Teachers already familiar with GoNoodle should note that at the time of this review, the premium paid features are being phased out, and starting in the 2021-2022 school year, all content in GoNoodle will be free. GoNoodle is available on a variety of platforms, including iOS and Android tablets as well as Apple TV and Roku. Versions on these other platforms include the videos and the majority of GoNoodle's videos but may not include some of the extra curriculum-aligned content. (Source:

“As we emerge from the pandemic, we have seen the significant impact it has had on our kids, from raised levels of stress and depression to lack of movement based on all Zoom/no PE” said CEO of GoNoodle, KC Estenson. “Families are searching for safe, compelling entertainment that inspires kids to move.

After 6 months of beta-testing and three years of growth, GoNoodle is now used in over 600,000 elementary classrooms, generating billions of minutes of fun, physical activity. The ‘fun’ of GoNoodle was so appealing that kids continue to play at home on mobile devices, computers and smart TVs. Now over 12 million kids are actively engaged each month, running, jumping, dancing and stretching with GoNoodle in classrooms and living rooms across the U.S. and in 175 countries worldwide. A study of 608 4th and 5th graders showed that those who played GoNoodle achieved a 50% greater improvement in math scores vs. students who did not play GoNoodle. (Source: www.forbes.com)

 

 

Scott McQuigg: Myself, along with my co-founders John Herbold, Abby Pecoriello and Aaron Briggs are all parents of young children. We realized our kids and their friends were not moving like we did growing up. The lack of physical play by our kids and their friends had us concerned they were missing out on the fun of childhood. And, we had an increasing awareness that sedentary lives were causing early onset of health conditions like obesity and diabetes in kids. Whether screen time at home, or sitting much of the school day, kids were not moving nearly enough, and it had become a societal issue that had to be fixed. However, we knew we could not simply apply the same approach to play from decades before to a digital generation that has entertainment rich experiences at the swipe of a finger.
