How I Use It
BrainPOP Junior is a great tool to help quickly bring a diverse group of learners to the same level of preparedness to take on a new topic or activity. Our learners all come to a lesson from different means with varying levels of prior knowledge from expert to non existence. I find BPJ Videos to be the perfect size blitz of details and overview to jumpstart a new topic, review something we need in order to move ahead, or pull us all together to a tangible uniform entry point.
My Take
BPJ Videos can be part of a larger presentation or stand alone, depending upon the specific topic of the video and the goal of the teacher.
