General
How I Use It
After I introduce a subject in class, I use BrainPOP to reinforce and review the topic. The information in the video can move rather quickly, so I prefer to use the BrainPOP movies as a way to reinforce supporting information. The quizzes are easy-to-assign and easy-to-assess from both student and teacher points of view. There is so much more to BrainPOP than the movies and quizzes, but you have to spend some time exploring before integrating it into your lessons.
My Take
Every time I check BrainPOP for a relevant topic, I inevitably find something exactly on topic or a great idea for extending the study to another subject.
