How I Use It
I use BrainPop when introducing a new subject or idea. This is especially useful when we are discussing something my students have learned previously but might not remember. BrainPop is a short and amusing way to reintroduce the idea. We will occasionally re-watch a video before a test for review if needed.
My Take
Tim and Moby do a great job presenting material in an interesting and fun manner. While some of the high school students think BrainPop is too "Middle School" they respond positively to the video after we have watched it together. Nearly all of them are willing to participate in the "test" and follow-up quesitons after the video.
