BrainPop & Beyond - More than just Movies! Will also introduce Creative Coding - Lisa Olson
BrainPOP has been a tremendous resource for many years in our classrooms. A BrainPOP Certified Educator will show you how to take learning even further by having students show their understanding by creating concept maps using key words, images, and video clips directly from the movies. Students create their maps using Make-A-Map or even make their own movies with Mobi in the new Make-A-Movie recently released. They have a great time with the educational Games tied to concepts. You have probably seen or used the Quizzes after the videos, but using the Quiz Mixer you can create your own quizzes! You can create several quizzes for a concept by creating your own questions or looking at a bank of previously made quizzes on a similar topic to allow differentiation so each student takes a quiz that is at their level. In this session you will learn how to set up your class, enroll your students and monitor their progress through all these parts of BrainPOP, use the BrainPOP Educator feature, and more!! Attendees should bring a laptop or Chromebook or use the ones provided.
