Editors’ Notes

Students and knowledge-seekers will love learning about a huge range of topics with this fantastic educational app. Spanning everything from global warming to the art of Frida Kahlo, BrainPOP’s animated movies pack a ton of information into just a few minutes, using a conversational style that’s easy to understand. And because each movie is followed by a quiz that records grades, teachers can ensure students understand the material. With dozens of free movies and hundreds more available with a paid subscription, BrainPOP Featured Movie is an excellent resource for any classroom.

BrainPOP is the best game ever !


This app has helped me learn so much about everything and also raise my grades. I’m now definitely the first one to answer the questions in school and I always get them correct. I think this app would make you, your child/children and your family know a few more things than before. There are also some more versions of this app, but I love this version the best. Tim and Moby are really funny to listen to and watch. There are captions for what they are saying in case it’s noisy, if you prefer to read what is being said, or have trouble hearing. Overall, this app is pure awesomeness and doesn’t glitch.

Great educational tool. Beware of political ideology.


The app is great. It teaches kids in bite sized videos that are generally entertaining and full of clearly explained information. However, certain videos can be problematic in that they teach the material with a definite political/ideological bias. So parents may want to preview videos and be prepared to discuss these points with their children. They can be valuable teachable moments. Also, remember that you need a subscription to access all the material. Some schools have subscriptions available for students to use. All in all, it is a great teaching/learning tool.
