"BrainPOP comes with a whole host of resources, all of which we use. Obviously the movies are the main aspect, but we also use the resource packs of graphic organisers, the games are great quality and the quiz function is brilliant. I personally don’t think there is anything better to encourage fun, substantial, and real learning."

BrainPOP’s animations are carefully constructed narratives, with the learning outcome set out at the start of the video.


The stories use characters and context to give meaning to explanation whilst relating to real life situations and environments.


BrainPOP is often employed as a discussion tool, reflecting on items in the news or national events such as natural disasters, politics, or the World Cup.


This gives students spoken language practice in a variety of subjects, but also encourages children to investigate an issue themselves and form their own opinion and confidently discuss it in class.


Quizzes and activities offer teachers the opportunity to identify strengths and areas for improvement to better provide feedback to learners.

Use BrainPOP to address what your students see, hear and read about in the news. It’s a great way to encourage children to investigate an issue, form their own opinion and confidently discuss it in class.

Tackle a tricky topic together

The heart of BrainPOP is discovery

Daily
discussion

How might you use BrainPOP?

Focus the
class

Watch a BrainPOP video with the whole class on your interactive display to introduce or reinforce a curriculum topic. Our videos are fully subtitled so all your students can follow the action.

Project based learning

Find a movie covering a topic where you struggle to engage pupils. Split the class into pairs to collaborate on feedback, prepare a presentation, or provoke discussion.

From improving note taking skills to making cross curricular connections, the breadth and depth of BrainPOP makes for a wonderful project research tool.
