6. Go Noodle – Get Kids Moving
As nominated by Laura Dickinson of North Tyneside Learning Trust, and Nicholas Clayton.
Go Noodle gamifies movement and exercise, getting kids out of their seats and allowing them to be energetic, playful and and active – with a touch of silliness mixed in just for good measure.
The platform features hundreds of pre-recorded, custom-created videos designed to get kids moving. There’s also a handful of videos specifically made to start introducing children to concepts of mindfulness, including breathing and meditation.
The awesome thing about Go Noodle is how it can be used everywhere. Teachers can use it as an intro exercise to a lesson, a break in the middle of a long class or even as a piece of homework for children to do alongside their siblings or parents at home.
“GoNoodle has inspired many of our schools to promote physical activity in schools using their brilliant videos. We actually had a Mass GoNoodle in July last year where 800 children came together to get active as one big group.” – Laura Dickinson
