    Welcome to the Teachers Use section. From here you’ll learn how to get the best out of BrainPOP and hear the stories of how other educators have successfully integrated BrainPOP into their teaching.

    Our philosophy

    Everyone uses BrainPOP in different ways, and our resources are meant to be open and flexible to accommodate all of the various ways BrainPOP might be used.

    We try to keep our design simple and understandable, and let teachers interpret their students’ needs on BrainPOP in whatever ways make sense to them.

    We don’t do adaptive learning. We are a non-prescriptive resource, we don’t tell students how to learn, or tell teachers how to teach.


    BrainPOP UK is fully mapped to the 2014 National Curriculum for England, the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence, and the Australian national curriculum.

    You’ll find lesson ideas on each topic page, and can drill down through curriculum standards using our Curriculum Mapping Tool.
