How I Use It
We have used this for Brain Breaks throughout our day. The videos can be customized for something upbeat, calming, different age groups, etc. Students love it and are all engaged. The character that you create as a mascot for your class changes and grows as you participate in more brain break videos.
My Take
This is a great resource for a teaching tool. I like that it is fun, engaging, user friendly, and quick to do. It helps students refocus after they have been engaging cognitive tasks for lengthy periods of time. The downside is that a few of the videos are not available for play because of they way they are linked to youtube. Other than that, it is very easy to use, and the students love it.
