How I Use It
We have used GameUp to reinforce concepts students had studied. Students were highly engaged. In one class, students were introduced to the concept of erosion. The students then played, "Landform Detectives" which functions as a virtual lab. Through the games students were able to explore which processes created the given land form.
My Take
I think this is a great additon to BrainPop. The games are high-interest, quality games backed by respected educational partners.
