Turn information into knowledge

Your students are going to enjoy Make-a-Map, our innovative concept mapping tool powered by Ideaphora®.

This tool allows students to create concept maps as they explore our resources, developing ideas using official BrainPOP movie clips, audio, images, and key vocabulary.

Students can include a written explanation of their thought process and submit maps to a teacher for feedback.

As students learn more they can revisit saved maps, extending their understanding and demonstrating progress.
