BrainPOP Featured Movie review
Teachers will find great use with the free BrainPOP app, which is an effective study companion for kids in elementary and middle school. The app provides cool, conversational, humorous and educative animated movies in various subjects such as Math and Social Sciences, allowing kids to explore the world around them.
With a bold, interactive design and lots of color and animation, your kids are sure to learn much and also have fun while at it.
Brain POP features over 1000 short educational animated movies for kids. It offers content on various subjects such as Math, Science, Social Sciences, Health, History, Tech, English, and other sub-varieties. You can log in to the free app version using your school’s login ID, or you can opt for the subscription option with more content.
Depending on the subject selected, for example, Math, you can view the available movies and click to choose one that you desire. The app also provides quizzes as you go along. The paid version costing $6.99 gives you access to much more content, so you can browse the entire catalog offered.
On the Home screen, you’ll get the featured movie for the day. You can also check your scores, such as your highest and averages.
The app is really simple to use and adapt for kids, and the animated movies add to the pleasure of using the app. We found the content a bit limited, especially because we were testing the free version. Kids can only use this as a fun learning tool and study aid, not as the main alternative for lessons. The app isn’t glitchy, and the videos run seamlessly. Kids can also use captions if they have trouble hearing the voice prompts.
For your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, you’ll require at least iOS 8.0. App’s compatibility for Android devices varies.
