    The more I see these webinars, the happier I am that my district has subscribed to the BrainPop website! The students love the movies already and I’m looking forward to using these new games in the next school year. I work with special ed students and I think the games would really help enforce the concepts they have learned. Great job, Robert and Andrew :)

    That was a great webinar and I really like the Game UP feature. This webinar had a lot of really cool games that I know my students will enjoy. This is a great way to reward students for their hard work and they are still doing something beneficial. Thanks a lot!!!

    I recently joined BrainPOP. My students love it! I have limited computers in my classroom and the computer chips in a fish bowl is a great way to make sure everyone is jumping on my few computers. I can not wait to participate in the April webinars.
    Thank you!!

    Dear Andrew:
    Thank you for hosting this wonderful webinar on Wednesday. I came back to school & immediately contacted the teachers to let them know about this great resource. This is the first webinar I’ve done where we played a game!
    Thank you very much.

    I enjoyed the webinar! I like how the students can use the movies as the resource for their strategies with the games and that the games cannot be easily mastered within a few minutes. Thanks again Robert and Andrew!

      Heidi, thanks for recognizing that. We feel it’s really important to provide scaffolding within the game play environment for GameUp games. As Robert said during the webinar, the videos provide that immediate help for students who may need clarification about a concept in order to succeed in the game!
