    I’m commenting on the “BrainPOP Plays Well With Others” webinar from August 2011. I found this webinar to be very interesting even though my school doesn’t have the ResponseCards. The teachers who use BrainPop are only able to find out if students are understanding the content featured in the movies using the quizzes through a whole-group approach. I’m going to suggest that a grant be written for the school in order for the ResponseCards to be added to the learning process (possibly three or four per classroom). I believe that seeing a few individuals responses at once could greatly improve the learning of the students and also give the teacher an immediate response to questions on the quizzes.
