What Educators Need to Know:

Years ago, when the internet was pretty much a new invention, Brainpop was a cool, new website.  Now, it is a cool, somewhat new, app for Apple devices.   The Featured Movie app is FREE, and every day there is a new movie presented as a cartoon with a guy named Tim and his robot, Mobi.  Movie topics are derived from a number of categories including Science, Social Studies, English, Math, Arts and Music, Health, and Tech and Engineering.  Each one is about five minutes long and includes a quiz when finished.  It may sound boring, but the movies definitely qualify as edutainment.  How to use it?  Have students earn points for correct answers as a student Brainpop challenge activity.  Prizes can be awarded at the end of each week, month, or year.  Additional movies can be added for an additional price.  See iTunes for more information.
