Sharing GoNoodle Home During Coronavirus
We have heard from many of our amazing teachers asking for help to share GoNoodle home to their students while schools are online-only or a hybrid or closed during this Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, and we absolutely support this mission!
GoNoodle Good Energy is a free collection of resources to help teachers, parents, and kids utilize GoNoodle at home - you can find more info here: https://www.gonoodle.com/good-energy-at-home-kids-games-and-videos/
We do not recommend giving your educator account login information to your class to GoNoodle at home. Educator accounts are meant to be used by grown-ups, therefore, they don't have the same safeguards in place for kids to use on their own as our family apps.
We have free family access options you can offer to your students. Our family apps contain videos they recognize from school to get kids up and moving at home with exclusive content made just for home. Families can find us on many platforms: Web, iOS, Android, Roku, FireTV and Fire Tablets, AppleTV - all still free for kids everywhere.
Share Links to Videos
You can share links to specific videos with your students on your virtual classrooms or through emails by using our share feature.
These share links will allow others to view specific GoNoodle videos without the need to log in or sign up. Use this feature to make it easy for parents to try out your favorite GoNoodle videos, and encourage them to create free accounts to access the rest of the GoNoodle library.
How To Share an Activity
- Log in to your GoNoodle account.
- Find the tile image of any GoNoodle video you would like to share.
- Click on the "Share" arrow.
The window that opens includes options to share directly to your Remind classroom or Google Classroom account. Plus, you'll find options to share a link directly on social media (Twitter, Facebook, or Pinterest), and a link option to copy a URL to your clipboard to paste into emails or share in your classroom communication tool - like Clever or SeeSaw or Schoology!
Your students and their families will see this in the browser when they click on a share link. No account sign up required!
