Innovate Learning, TRANSFORM The Future
Day 2 - Whoa...
BrainPop Educator Academy
I know....I know....We are still waiting on our student logins! I am visiting the BrainPOP booth tomorrow to hopefully move this along, but I learned some very cool things and now I can't wait for our students to get their hands on all of these wonderful tools!
- BrainPOP is really big into concept maps and when our students get their accounts you can assign them concept maps to create (either from scratch, from a template or one you started. They have an excellent BrainPOP movie for this. Log into your teacher account and search "Concept Mapping" and watch it! So clearly explained...it is great.
- When you are logged in to your teacher account. Scroll down to find the "BrainPop Educators" link. This site is packed full of useful stuff including printables and lesson plans.
- When our students get their accounts there are many different activities they can do! It's not just a movie with a quiz anymore! One of the activities I really enjoyed was Make-A-Movie! Student get to make their own BrainPOP movies for this one! SO MUCH FUN!!!
This is the tip of the iceberg of what I learned about BrainPOP today....Can't wait to get our students in there, and I can't wait to teach you guys more!!
