We’ve thought long and hard about how we can make being a BrainPOP UK subscriber even more beneficial than it already is. On that note (drum roll please) we’d like to introduce you to a brand new feature: Spotlights.
Being part of BrainPOP UK should be rewarding, providing a sprinkle of inspiration each time you log in. So a subscriber-only space where we bring together movies, additional content, and fun stuff all in one place seemed to be just the ticket.
The main aim being? To create a place of inspiration for teachers and students alike and ensure you get the most from being part of BrainPOP UK.
Hence, Spotlights. We’re unveiling them this week. But, what are they?
Spotlights bring together hand-picked movies relating to a central theme. They also provide additional content in the shape of fun experiments, info sheets, lesson plans, links to handy Spotlight-related websites and POP Spot; a special Spotlights area of POPtalk.
We’ve come up with a different Spotlight for each month of the year so hopefully you’ll find something useful for lessons.
To help you plan, here’s what’s coming up:
Spotlight on…stupendous structures and oustanding construction. Gravity, compression and tension at work.
Spotlight on…wet, windy and wonderful weather. Eyes skywards for some cloud spotting with Tim & Moby.
Spotlight on…your world. Up for a rescue mission? Taking responsibility to reboot, reuse and recycle.
Spotlight on…growing up. Can you blame it all on the hormones? Yes you can! Tim & Moby help with a few growing pains.
Spotlight on…the human body. It’s an amazing machine. Learn how it works, and how to look after it properly, with Tim & Moby.
Spotlight on…a galaxy far far away. Tim & Moby journey into Space, avoiding the Death Star, to investigate planets, stars, galaxies and more.
We’ve made our first Spotlight accessible to all to start with so that everyone gets the chance to try Super Structures on for size.
Your feedback is like gold dust to us so let us know what you think – any suggestions welcome!
We’re doing much nail biting in anticipation (eugh!)
