How I Use It
I used gonoodle.com during transition times in the class and also as a motivational tool. It works best whole class on a projected screen so they whole class can see. The teacher creates an account and then creates separate classes. A champ keeps up with the minutes the class has taken "brain breaks" and then the students get a new champ after they get so many minutes. It has a visual bar graph for the students so they know how many more minutes is needed until the next "champ"
My Take
My students and I both love gonoodle. It is a fun and easy way to calm students down, or to let them release some pent up energy so their brains are ready to work. It is easy to use and implement in the classroom.
