BrainPOP is our school’s favourite website, with BrainPOP, BrainPOP Jr, BrainPOP Français  andBrainPOP Español available to HCOS students. This animated, award-winning online resource provides hundreds of animated, curriculum-based movies covering topics in Science, Social Studies, Math, English, Arts and Music, Health, and Technology with the core content targeted for grades K-8. However, some content is helpful to high school students. Following each movie clip, students have the opportunity to participate in quizzes, cartoons, and do-it-yourself experiments, and with the click of a button, the quiz result can be forwarded to you support teacher.

BrainPOP Español and BrainPOP Français are recommended for grades 4-8.  These are intended for students who speak these languages fluently, or are looking to reinforce language skills. Bear in mind they are not language learning tools.

Students cannot save their work unless they are accessing BrainPOP through a teacher’s My BrainPOP roster.  (not available to parents)  There are a number of activities on BrainPOP that require students to log in through the My BrainPOP roster.  For example, the “Make-a-Movie” platform is available exclusively to students who have HCOS teachers with a My BrainPOP teacher account.

(1) Make-a-Movie

For information about Make-a-Movie, go to Info about Make-a-Movie or the how-to screencast:  How to use Make-a-Movie or the Make-a-Movie Step Guide Make-a-Movie Step Guide.

(2)  GameUp

Many BrainPOP games will only allow a student to play fully if they are logged into the teacher’s My BrainPOP roster. For more information, and how to use the games, go to BrainPOP Games.

To find BrainPOP games, go to Directory of BrainPOP Games.

To find BrainPOP Jr games go to BrainPOP Jr. Games.

BrainPOP Educators is a collection of tips, tools, and resources to inspire and support teachers, parents, tutors, and everyone else who educates young people. Found at BrainPOP Educators, it features a blog that announces new BrainPOP features, hosts guest bloggers, and follows current events from the world of educational technology. On BrainPOP Educators you’ll find resources including lesson plans, calendars of events, and creative suggestions for using BrainPOP with your students.

Note:  There are apps for all BrainPOP products.

Parents and teachers can access BrainPOP Educators without logging in to the site, and the great variety of information to be found there is free to you.  The link can be found by scrolling down on the home page:

or in the navigation at the very bottom:

The navigation in BrainPOP Educators is easy to follow.  Searching through the various links will give parents or teachers great material.

To find the correlations to BC curriculum, go to “Academic Standards” and you can find BrainPOP videos to support students’ interests for all grades from K to 12.

Unfortunately, no, we are not allowed to give parents access to My BrainPOP due to the privacy laws in the US and Canada.

Teachers (not parents or EAs) should already have a roster in My BrainPOP.  Contact Beth Johnson if you cannot log in.

What is My BrainPOP?  This tool allows students to track what they have done, movies watched, quizzes taken.  It tracks activity pages saved, snapshots & results from GameUp.  Educators can set up classes, set up students’ progress, see students’ work.  Teachers can score & make comments on quizzes, plus see summary of quiz scores.  It helps the teacher tailor to their students’ needs.  It also now allows students to use “Make-a-Movie” and play the “GameUp” games fully, because they can save their work when they are in their teacher’s site.

To get started using BrainPOP, here is a link to their brief YouTube video  How do I get started in BrainPOP?

Setting up Students in your Class:

When a class is created in the “My Classes” tab the teacher will create a corresponding “class code”, the code can be distributed to students in order to create their own accounts that will be linked to the class. They just enter the class code in the “Enter Code” field at the top of the website. From there, they will click “Sign Up Now!” to create an account. At that point, the student will enter in their name and create a username and password.

Once the student account is created, you should be able to see it when you click “Manage Class” in the “My Classes” tab.

For students to be in more than one class:  Students can be part of more than one class with their accounts. Both teachers can create a class and have the same group of students (or any configurations they would like) join both. The teachers wouldn’t be able to view or access each other’s activity, but they would both still be able to create assignments.

To join additional classes, the student just needs to enter the class code at the top where it says ‘enter code’   and click submit. Then they enter their username and password. That should be all it takes to join the new class and begin getting assignments from both teachers.

Here is a brief video walkthrough that you might find helpful:  Setting up a Class Roster in My BrainPOP.

Allowing students to explore the site:

Question:  If I want to follow an individualized student’s progress but not necessarily assign work myself, can I create a class, add my students to this, send them each the code, and then allow them to explore BrainPop as they choose?  Same goes for coding and movie maker – do I need to assign the work or just have them on my class list in order to see their progress?

The answer back from the My BrainPOP tech folk:  It isn’t quite possible in the way that you describe; however, you would be able to add students into your class and see a timeline of work that they submit to you without assigning it in the first place. This means that if the student watches a video, takes a quiz, and plays a game related to a topic, you won’t automatically see it until they click “submit to teacher”, which is possible even if the topic was not specifically assigned to them.

Assigning to individuals or the whole grade:

Question:  I’m wondering if I set up a class with students in Gr. 4-9, do they ALL get my class assignments, or can I send only to a certain grade? I’m wondering if I should set up several classes (one for each grade level) or simply ONE class?

Answer from My BrainPOP:  You will be able to tailor who receives what assignment within a single class, however in your case it would likely be easiest to create separate classes by grade level.
