10 year old Grace is a Digital Leader at St John the Baptist Primary. Leader by name, leader by nature, Grace took it upon herself to review BrainPOP UK, which we’re very proud (with her permission) to reproduce in full here.
Hello. My name is Grace and this is why I think BrainPOP is great for learning.
Firstly, BrainPOP helps anyone learn anything even if they learn in a different way to other people. I, for example, learn by seeing things in front of me but my friend learns by hearing things.
Does that mean we can’t learn together? No – we have BrainPOP!
In the BrainPOP videos the characters Tim and Moby don’t only show you how to do whatever you are learning about- they tell you as well, that means me and my friend can learn together!
As well as this the videos are funny, colourful and informative, this makes learning fun and more like watching a cartoon – basically tricking children into learning (sneaky teachers)!
I noticed that when we use BrainPOP in class even the children who don’t enjoy learning become excited.
I even use BrainPOP at home.
For example; I enjoy knowing things ahead of others so when I heard about binary numbers I got excited, firstly I asked my parents to explain these strange binary numbers, although they are extremely intelligent when my parents explained I still found binary numbers confusing.
Then I went on BrainPOP!
Using humor as well as information Tim and Moby told me all about binary numbers and now I know more about them than one of the most clever people in my school!
This is why I think BrainPOP is an amazing tool for learning!
All we can say is, thank you Grace, we salute you.
