TORONTO, CANADA, October 2022
This one’s for you, teachers.
Goodable is thrilled to announce the launch of “Goodable in the Classroom,” a free resource for educators that includes a digest of positive news, printable worksheets, discussion prompts for classrooms, trivia questions, and more.
And the best part: it’s 100% free!
“This is our way of paying it forward to all the teachers who’ve made a difference in our own lives,” explains Alex Stewart, Head of Business Development and Partnerships at Goodable. “Students are deeply affected by the negativity of what they see on the news. Goodable lets students see the world through a positive lens.”
Goodable in the Classroom was built in response to educators who asked Goodable to design a specific product that would help them motivate their students at the beginning of each week. Through the program, every educator who signs up will receive a free, weekly digest of good news stories optimized to educate and motivate their students. Each edition comes with its own lesson plan, discussion prompts, high-quality printable worksheets, and weekly trivia. All content is verified by Goodable’s team of award-winning journalists for accuracy, relevance, and educational quality.
"I will be using this in the classroom, for sure! I’m always apprehensive to use newspapers and websites because it’s all so negative and violent! There’s so much I can do with this." - Shayla Kellie, Grade 7/8 teacher
“I love it already. I plan on using your resources to balance current events that are not so ‘Goodable’.” - Connie Learning, Grade 9 teacher
Goodable in the Classroom is currently available by invitation-only. Teachers can access their personal invite at www.goodable.co/education.

TORONTO, CANADA, March 2022
TORONTO, CANADA, March 2022 – Goodable Inc is excited to announce the release of the Goodable app, available on iOS and Android. It marks the first time ever that a news company is entering the Health & Wellness space, through providing verified positive news, daily micro-goals, and resources designed to help users improve their mental health.
By delivering verified good news and psychologist approved daily check-ins, Goodable is combining two markets that have never been combined before: News and Health & Wellness. Goodable’s in-house built machine learning has the power to scan thousands of news sources everyday from around the world, then identify which articles are positive and uplifting. In an industry first, each article is then assigned a unique “Happiness Score” and optimised for three outcomes: To help users feel better, sleep better, and perform better. Goodable Spark, the app’s mental health and wellness module, features a set of daily activities designed with the help of Dr. Vivien Lee, one of Canada’s leading psychologists. Each activity is purpose built to be completed in just five minutes a day and at the user’s own pace, to help reduce anxiety and depression.
Goodable was founded in Toronto by veteran CNN and ABC Warzone Correspondent Muhammad Lila, a multi Emmy/SAJA nominated journalist who averaged 100+ flights per year covering global conflicts from the frontlines. After years of covering the world’s biggest problems, Lila decided he wanted to help solve them instead. What started as a small idea turned into a global movement. Goodable quickly oversubscribed its first funding round, led by top-tier investors including one of the biggest names in Hollywood, and hired a newsroom of industry leaders, including journalists, engineers, designers, developers, and more — all with a goal to change the world for good.
“Everybody knows the news is broken,” explains Lila. “It’s making us depressed on a global scale, with no end in sight. We built Goodable to fix that problem right at the source.”
With the launch of the Goodable app, users will now be able to access Goodable at their fingertips, with breaking good news alerts and tools that harness the news to improve your mental health.
Today’s announcement is one of several that Goodable will be making in the coming weeks as it expands into new markets with new innovative offerings that will forever change the way users consume the news.
The Goodable app is now available across all countries for free, with an in-app purchase of Goodable Spark available for $14.99 USD and $20.99 CAD.
