How I Use It
I show the intro video to the entire class on the Smart Board and then have them play the games afterward on their own. Our personal favorites are Search Shark and Share Jumper. They keep asking to play them again!
My Take
I use Brain Pop lessons on digital citizenship (online safety, how to search the internet, etc) with my students. Each lesson has an intro video that captivates my students as well as an interactive game included that allows them to practice the skills after watching the intro video and some class instruction.
