How I Use It
I usually use a BrainPop video to introduce a new topic of study in my classroom. Students love Tim and Moby and think that the videos are enjoyable and funny. I like that each video asks questions and allows you to pause for discussion throughout. I love the quizzes at the end too that hold students accountable for listening. However, sometimes I feel that some of the questions weren't really answered throughout the video.
My Take
I try to use BrainPop or BrainPop Jr for every unit that I am teaching my students because they enjoy it so much. I love that the websites provide activities and lesson ideas that can be used in addition to the video. I wish that BrainPop would add more videos to cover more content, but I am sure it will keep coming over time!
