How I Use It
I use BrainPop in the classroom for various reasons. Sometimes I use it as a launch for a lesson to get the students engaged. Other times I use it as a review of a topic that has been studied. BrainPop can also be utilized to gather information about a topic. This website incorporates a variety of subjects in their short, yet engaging videos. This website is appealing to students of all ages because it provides cartoon type graphics with educational information. The quizzes at the end of each clip are entertaining for the students, but they do not provide much data for each individual student.
I love this website as a teaching tool. BrainPop can deliver the same information that I give to my students simply in a different way. We have many diverse learners in our classrooms. Students gain information in different ways. This is just another way for students to absorb information.
