BrainPOP helps deepen understanding, boost higher order thinking, and encourage more agency all at once. Follow this easy structure to get started.
1. Build Background Knowledge
Start with a movie that simplifies complex topics clearly. Tim, Moby, and friends make jokes and real-life connections that students love, and with over 1000+ movies across the curriculum, teachers love us too.
2. Think and Do
After ensuring everyone has the same background knowledge, create assignments with Make-a-Movie or Creative Coding to encourage higher-order thinking and help students demonstrate new knowledge. Assign projects, or give students the agency to choose their own.
3. Assess from Afar
Use your Dashboard tools to track quiz results, review assignment submissions and give personalized feedback. These results can also help you differentiate instruction and provide additional support or new challenges for those who need it.
