The learning journey
Using their individual 'My BrainPOP' account a child's BrainPOP activity can be captured from their first click to their last. 6 years of rich learning history!
Year group transitions
Before the start of a new academic year, teachers can easily look back through incoming pupils' BrainPOP dashboard - maps and movies made, scores achieved, feedback given, and so on. Seek out areas of interest, what enthused them, and where they need work.
Know the value of BrainPOP
The My BrainPOP Admin dashboard records use across the school - login counts, popular movies, class management, etc. You can even check which teachers are the most prolific users and ask them to train others!
Here's a few teaching ideas for primary classrooms
Energise a lesson!
BrainPOP is a great way to introduce a new topic or concept. Use the movies to engage your students with active viewing! Pause when a new vocabulary word pops up, or have students paraphrase what happened, make a prediction or connect what they just saw to their own experience.
Make a Map
Ask children to start a map when you introduce a new topic, and to build and improve on it over time.
Read all about it!
The breadth and depth of topics in BrainPOP can help address the questions kids ask about what they see, hear and read about in the news. Use the 'Newsela' feature (Topic based lexia leveled news articles) to engage students in literacy no matter their reading level.
BrainPOP movies are just the right length to use for improving note-taking skills. Encourage students to put the movie’s main concepts into their own words or summarise the main ideas. Use subtitles to support struggling readers and writers.
