How I Use It
I usually use these videos with my flipped learning. I have the students watch the videos, sometimes as a whole class, sometimes individually. You can have them take the quiz in BrainPop, but I create my own questions based on the knowledge I am looking to check for understanding.
My Take
I like that the videos keep their interest and they look forward to watching them. Sometimes topics that are "dry" are best covered using these videos. There is closed captioning available which I have found to be valuable for my hearing impaired. There are free videos and then there are paid only.
