How I Use It
This tool can be used after lessons or at random points in the day. It can work as a reward system for younger students and motivate them to finish their work. I would use this resource after students completed their required activities for the day. If there is extra time or it seems like students are going to finish early, they can take a break and engage in GoNoodle. There are many different videos with different themes and durations so they can be used in whatever way the teacher sees appropriate.
My Take
I think this is a great tool to gives students a chance to give their brains a break and have some movement. Sitting at a desk all day can be difficult for many students so GoNoodle allows them to get up and move around. When each video starts, it tells the viewer what the purpose of that video is. Students know what to expect and can follow the video. This website has videos that show different subjects so teachers can decide what video applies to the lesson they are teaching and use it to have fun with their students.
