You may have noticed that we take teacher feedback extremely important. Our goal is to provide teachers with the resources and best user experience; to make your work easier and more effective.
This is why we are releasing new Kid Power Up videos every week until the end of this school year.
We also made several improvements to improve your Kid Power experience.
Search Kid Power Ups by Category
Our collection of Kid Power Up videos is continuously growing! We have over 75 videos with at least 20 more that will be released before end of school year.
We have now organized them into four categories so that you can easily find a Kid Power Up to best fit your classroom’s needs.
Dance: High Energy
Do your students have a little too much energy they need to burn off to get ready to learn? Search through our collection of Dance: High Energy Kid Power Ups.
Dance: Moderate Energy
Want your students to get up and move around a bit, energize their minds, but not necessarily break a sweat? Browse our library of Dance: Moderate Energy Kid Power Ups.
If you OR your students simply need to chillax, choose from one of our Yoga/Meditation Kid Power Ups. (Note: some of these might require students to sit or lay on the floor.)
These are non-dance Kid Power Ups that can be conversation starters to get students thinking critically, talking and working together. From learning about the Global Goals to assessing what it takes to become a champion, students will develop social-emotional skills with these Connect Kid Power Ups.
There’s also a fifth category that will appear in your Dashboard called Starred/Favorites...which brings us to our next new enhancement!
Save Your Team’s Favorite Videos
We know, we know. Students can be particular and have their Kid Power Up favorites. (And we know you’d never have a favorite student!) So when kids cheer and shout for their favorite Kid Power Ups, you can click that little star next to the video’s title and it will show up in your Starred/Favorites category. Easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy!
And when students get tired of playing that favorite Kid Power Up after the 20th time, you can simply un-click the blue star and it will be removed from your Favorites.
Preview Before You Play
Finally, we know that you often like to preview the videos before you play them in front of your class — which is great and definitely good practice. So we’ve added that ability to Preview the full video (or as much of it as you’d like) before you Play it in front of your class.
When you preview a Kid Power Up, it doesn’t count towards your team’s total count of Kid Power Ups completed. (Because it’s just you watching it, not your students and that would be cheating, right?!)
We hope these enhancements help improve your UNICEF Kid Power experience. If you have additional suggestions or ideas, please email us anytime at [email protected]. We always love hearing from you!
