The Educator Code is a special code we use to verify BrainPOP Educator accounts. This is to comply with COPPA and helps us ensure that all student information is kept safe and private. You can get your school’s Educator Code by contacting your school or district’s administrator. If you don’t know who that is, no sweat! We can help you contact the person during the verification process.
Note that until you enter your Educator Code, you will not have access to My BrainPOP, the Mixer, or be able to link to your school’s subscription.
During the registration process, you’ll get a chance to contact the administrator who is listed in our records to get your school’s Educator Code. If you’re having problems or haven’t heard back from him or her, you can contact us.
Remember, until you enter your Educator Code, you will not have access to My BrainPOP, the Mixer, or be able to fully explore all the resources on BrainPOP Educators.
When you sign up for a new BrainPOP Educators account, you’ll be asked to enter the Educator Code in Step 2.
If you already have a BrainPOP Educators account, log in with your credentials. Then in the drop down menu under your username select “Link Subscription.” There you’ll link your BrainPOP Educators account to your school’s BrainPOP subscription and enter your Educator Code.
We’ll happily provide certificates of participation for our webinars, whether you attend them live or access them later through our Archives. To obtain a certificate of participation, post a comment on the BrainPOP Educators blog after you attend or access a webinar. Your comment should expand the relevant conversation – share an idea you’re excited about or a resource you’d like to try, for instance. We’ll send you a certificate after we receive the comment.
Unlike BrainPOP, BrainPOP Educators is designed for use by individual teachers. Signing up for a personal username for BrainPOP Educators allows teachers using BrainPOP easy access to our supplemental materials, newsletter archives and more.
There are many ways to secure funding for your BrainPOP subscription. Connect with your school’s parent organization, apply to your district’s education foundation, or approach your school’s community business partner. You might even have a school bake sale! For more resources, visit Grant Wrangler, Donor’s Choose, and Digital Wish to search for education related grants. There’s a search engine built into the sites!
We love to share educators’ expertise with our BrainPOP Educators community! If you are interested in being featured as a guest blogger, collaborating on a webinar, or joining us at a conference, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

BrainPOP Educators offers all you need to get up and running. Our tools for “Newbies” make integration of BrainPOP as easy as possible, and include Getting Started Guides, Video Tutorials, and much more.
Not at the moment. There are a number of reasons why we don’t offer answer keys, including the fact that we are currently upgrading all quizzes so that each contains four answer options; more higher-order thinking questions; and in some cases, images. We understand that quiz answer keys would save many teachers time and effort; it is possible that we may offer them sometime in the future.
BrainPOP can be used in a variety of ways, from introducing a lesson or difficult concept to measuring comprehension and motivating learners. We encourage you to visit BrainPOP Educators for more on this topic. You can also find out more in the About Us section of our web site.
All BrainPOP and BrainPOP Jr. movies are aligned to Common Core Standards, which are currently available for K-12 English Language Arts and Mathematics. You can browse our Standards Tool to see the alignments. The tool can be accessed via BrainPOP Educators, or from the BrainPOP and BrainPOP Jr. homepages.
Yes they are! At www.brainpop.com/educators/community/academic-standards, you’ll find a searchable database that correlates BrainPOP topics and games to Common Core math and English standards. You can even search by grade level. The database allows you to correlate BrainPOP movies with curriculum standards from individual states and Canadian provinces.
