GetNoodles Web-Based Educational Software Program

Hey Mommas!  Remember I told you guys if I ever came across anything I think  may wanna know about or NEED to know about I would make sure I let you know?  Well, I found this very neat program I wanted to share with you.   It’s called GetNoodles!   GetNoodles is basically a web-based software that helps to make your childs time on-line more productive.  I’ll tell you more about it in a minute.

Let’s face it, Kids love the internet.  It’s Fun. They get to play games, look things up, chat with friends and create pages.  Problem is… some may argue that kids spend entirely too much time online and that can become a problem when it starts to interfere with school work.  Are your kids spending too much time online?  That may be a question you wanna ask yourself.   My kids are young and granted don’t spend a lot of time surfing the net.  But as they get older, I’m sure all of that will change.   This is why I like the concept of GetNoodles.

GetNoodles is a new FREE web-based educational software program that can be quickly installed.   It  will interrupt your child’s playtime on the Internet with pop-up multiple choice questions and quizzes from a wide variety of subjects. To continue, kids must correctly answer the educational question in order to resume their online activities.  I love it and everyone is happy.  Kids get to do what they enjoy while also getting an educational lesson in the process and parents get to set guidelines yet still allowing kids the freedom to enjoy what they love to do.

 GetNoodles is designed for use by kids in preschool through 12th grade and compatible on both Windows and MAC computers.

  • One parental account can have up to six children using the software.
  • Parents receive a weekly email newsletter to show the child’s statistics and overall progress.
  • GetNoodles tracks each child’s total time online.
  • Parents can change the child’s settings from any computer 
  • Can be customized for each child by changing  the educational subjects, timing and frequency as often as desired.
  • Parents can easily and quickly turn off pop-up questions when adults are using the computer.
  • Software will work on any computer running Windows98, XP or Vista .
  • Subjects are categorized by School Subjects, College Preps, or Life Lessons
  • Premium subjects include voice prompts and multiple choice questions.
  • Available in many different languages.

 As an added incentive to learn, correctly answered questions allow kids to earn points qualifying them for raffle ticket prizes that include gift certificates from major retailers. Every point a child earns with a correct answer is also awarded to the parent, who then qualifies for their own raffle tickets.
