The Educator Code is a special code we use to verify My BrainPOP teacher 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 the Activity Page Answer Keys.
During the My BrainPOP 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 Activity Page Answer Keys.
When you sign up for a new My BrainPOP teacher account to use our advanced features, you’ll be asked to enter the Educator Code in Step 2.
If you already have a personal Educators account, log in with your credentials. Then in the drop down menu under your username select “Link Subscription.” There you’ll link your Educator account to your school’s BrainPOP subscription and enter your Educator Code.
The resources on BrainPOP Educators exists just as they always have – you just no longer need to sign in to view them. If you want to use our advanced features, My BrainPOP or the Mixer, you must be associated with a 24/7 school-wide subscription and you will need to create a personal My BrainPOP teacher account to get started.
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 www.brainpop.com/educators/community/, 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 in the classroom.
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.
We’ll happily provide certificates of participation for our webinars, whether you attend them live or access them later through our Archives. As we’re currently updating our certificate process for archived webinars, we ask that you simply contact our Educators team via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your comments and reflection on the webinar you watched. 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.
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 email@example.com.
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.
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.
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.
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.
