How I Use It
Teachers will have students watch videos independently and occasionally in teams or small groups. Often it's based on self-directed interest. However, teachers will also ask students to watch videos in order to activate their knowledge for an upcoming lesson. They will also use it as a follow-up to lessons in order to extend students' learning.
My Take
You know what BrainPOP says: "the more you know, the more you know." This is a great one to have on the iPads. We have the BrainPOP Featured Movie and BrainPOP Jr. Movie of the Week on our iPads. It's great to see kids so engaged and so hooked on learning more about topics. What a way to have students build their general fund of knowledge!
