Complex turned Easy
Today, some students, especially those who are disadvantaged or have special needs, have difficulty in understanding complex topics. However, what BrainPop does is by having cartoon characters, Tim and Moby, explain it. Having a cartoon explain complex topics is easier for students as opposed to reading from a book. The quizzes are good too with lots of useful questions throughout.
How I Use It
I always used BrainPop growing up as a student. If I were a teacher, I would use BrainPop in the classroom the same way as my teachers did for me. I would introduce complex topics by showing Tim and Moby explain it and follow that up with an online game or quiz from the site.
