How I Use It
I use Brain Pop videos as hooks or starters for my class discussion. I usually look for a topic and if they have a video, I'll check it out. If I see that it could be beneficial to my students, I use it. The quizzes at the end of the video can be useful at times but I don't like that they are just multiple choice; I would prefer open ended questions or deeper thinking questions.
I wish that this website was not as expensive. I rarely use it because I do not want to pay for it. I use it once in an while when I sign up for a free trial but that only lasts about 10 days. I think this is a great tool for quick review or a springing board for a class discussion.
