How I Use It
I regularly use BrainPOPJr to introduce and reinforce concepts. My K-2 students LOVE Moby and Annie and they retain the information that they see. I have also used it as a replacement health activity for my students who are unable to attend PE. They watch the video and complete the quiz or the interactive activity related to the video.
My Take
These video segments are engaging, entertaining, and educational. Children love to watch them and they become fans of Moby and can't wait to see what he will do next. I wish that BrainPOPJr would expand its digital citizenship and internet units and update some of the technology information as it is a bit dated.
