    We work with schools all over the world, often British international schools that follow a UK curriculum, and recently became a COBIS (Council of British International Schools) supporting member. We’d like to share some very kind words that we received from GEMS Royal Dubai school, who have been subscribers to BrainPOP UK, BrainPOP ESL, and BrainPOP Jr since 2011.

    About GEMS Royal Dubai School

    Opened in September 2005, GEMS Royal Dubai School offers a high quality education from Foundation Stage to Year 6. It is the only school in the area to offer the National Curriculum for England, taught by British trained and experienced teachers, chosen for their abilities to create a motivational, child-centred environment.

    BrainPOP UK (7-14) Tania Basson, Year 3 Teacher/Team Leader

    “I have had the pleasure of using BrainPOP UK with the students in my Year 3 classroom for the past 3 years. What the children enjoy most is that the characters use child friendly language. The conversations that Tim and Moby have are ones that could be taking place between two 8 year olds! They ask questions that the children want to know and answer them in simple to understand language. What I like is that the correct terminology is used, so that the children are learning while thinking that they are just having fun.”

    BrainPOP ESL (English as a Second Language) – Rebecca Dickinson, Head of ELL

    “BrainPOP ESL seems have everything my English Language Learners need to develop their English. The App is easy for all to navigate with just a couple of taps to get started, and being able to access it via the website or app makes it more appealing. Learners can access lessons and practise their skills independently through a variety of multi-sensory activities. For teachers the Grammar Index is a great resource for a glance at what each unit covers enabling targeted support. Being able to access a child’s progress for each level is important for parents, teachers and learner through the ‘My Progress’ area.”

    BrainPOP Jr (4-7) Deborah Lambell, Year 2 Teacher/Digital Learning Leader KS2

    “BrainPOP Jr is an excellent tool which supports all curriculum areas. I have found it particularly useful for lessons such as Science and Mathematics. The video clips are interactive and capture the children’s imagination, introducing concepts in a clear way with fun characters the children enjoy watching. The children comment: “We like BrainPOP Jr because it teaches them new things including facts”.

    If you teach at a school outside the UK, we’d love to hear from you. Please drop us a line or take out a free trial.
