You’ve probably experienced BrainPOP on a computer. But did you know you can also access BrainPOP through a PlayStation 3 console?
All you need is a PS3 (obviously) with a wired or wireless connection and a lovely big TV.
Every PS3 comes with its own web browser, that functions pretty much like the internet browser you have on your computer, that you use to access websites.
BrainPOP is built in Flash so theoretically can operate via any device that has a Flash compatible browser. And there’s lots about – maybe more than you realise.
Why would you want to use BrainPOP at home? Because:
- It helps explain current events
- It’s a revision tool for exams
- It provides excellent homework support
- It’s a safe and fun research resource
- It extends what kids are learning at school into the home
- It means your console can be used for more than just gaming
Here’s our home made (but from the heart) video showing you how to access BrainPOP through your TV via a PS3 console.
Accessing the BrainPOP website in your living room isn’t restricted to the PlayStation though. BrainPOP works across multiple channels.
- Apple devices - iPad, iPhone, iTouch – Search Apple App store for “BrainPOP UK” .
- Nintendo Wii – we would love someone to record a video explaining “How to use BrainPOP on your Wii” – all you need is the Wii browser & a wireless connection. There’s a whole load of Wii points for anyone that gets in touch and delivers a usable video.
- Android/Flash enabled tablets & Smart phones like the Dell Streak 7, HTC Flyer, Motorola XOOM™, Samsung Galaxy™ & Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, HTC EVO etc. There’s too many to list but again we’d love pictures of BrainPOP working on Android devices.
If you access BrainPOP anywhere other than through a laptop or desktop we’d like to hear about it.
