BrainPOP (3-8) and BrainPOP, Jr (K-3)
What is BrainPOP?Founded in 1999, BrainPOP creates animated, curricular content that engages students, supports educators, and bolsters achievement. In traditional, blended, and "flipped" learning settings, BrainPOP supports individual, team, and whole-class learning. At school and in informal learning environments, our characters help introduce new topics and illustrate complex concepts. (Courtesy of Brain POP website, click to read About Us.)

My BrainPOP lets students and teachers keep track of learning. Teachers invite their students to join "classes" they've set up on My BrainPOP. From there, they can create custom quizzes with the Mixer™, correct quizzes, comment on activities, and more. Students can see a history of the movies they’ve watched and activities they've tackled. Additionally, a selection of GameUp titles offers a "snapshot" tool so players can capture and reflect on key points.
