Brainpop in the Classroom

Brainpop is a great video tool for students to use in the classroom! It is highly engaging and students enjoy watching the educational videos.  One benefit of using Brainpop is that students can watch the video as many times as they need until they understand the topic.  There are many ways that you can use Brainpop in the classroom.    

- Introduce a new topic
- Reinforce a skill
- Flipped classroom: students can view the video at home or at a rotation in the classroom
- Take quizzes and play games on a topic



  1. Thanks for the BrainPop info. The one HUGE drawback to BP is the cost. I was fortunate this year to be allowed, shall we say, to use someone else's password to get in. It really is an expense that a school has to undertake but it is such a great resource. I've never heard a student groan when you say "Let's watch this BP video." The students love them. Thanks for the idea of flipping the classroom. I do wonder about the password issue though.

  2. I do agree with you about the cost Annie. It is very expensive. We were able to get home accounts for our students for them to use the password at home. I don't know how our school did it but the kids loved using it at home.

  3. This seams like it might be a great tool for special education students. With Hammond moving to BYOD this coming school year, I could envision many students using this tool on a tablet or phone. Too bad it is expensive.
